SABAK BERNAM: PAS dewan ulamak chief, Datuk Dr Nik Muhammad Zawawi Salleh (pic) confirms that he was appointed as the new secretary of the PAS syura ulama council (MSU) effective Feb 20.
Nik Muhammad, who is also Agriculture and Food Industries Deputy Minister II, said his appointment took effect after the PAS syura ulama council meeting on Feb 20 night following the resignation of Datuk Dr Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali earlier the same day.
“Yes, it (new appointment) is correct. I have been a member (of the MSU) but I was unanimously appointed (as its secretary) when Mohd Khairuddin resigned.
“Mohd Khairuddin resigned with honour and the council discussed whether to reappoint me as (secretary). Previously, I held the secretary post for over 10 years,” he said when asked by reporters on the appointment after visiting the Sekinchan Large-Scale Smart Paddy Field (Smart SSB) Programme here on Tuesday (Feb 22).
Mohd Khairuddin, who is also Kuala Nerus MP, announced his resignation as secretary and MSU member in accordance with Clause 8(7) of the PAS constitution. – Bernama
