Perak exco line-up worked out, members to be sworn in Nov 22

IPOH: The new Perak state executive council line-up will probably see the appointment of four assemblymen from DAP, two from PKR, three from Umno and one from Amanah.

The three from Umno do not count portfolios that would be held by Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad.

The swearing-in ceremony is expected to take place Tuesday (Nov 22) in Kuala Kangsar.

A Pakatan Harapan source said the most likely candidates from DAP are Wong May Ing (Pantai Remis), A. Sivanesan (Sungkai), Teh Kok Lim (Aulong) and Loh Sze Yee (Jalong).

When Pakatan formed the state government after GE14 in 2018, Wong and Sivanesan were part of the state exco.

As for PKR, the most likely names are second-term Teja assemblywoman Sandrea Ng Shy Ching, and newly-elected Tualang Sekah representative Mohd Azlan Helmi Helmi.

Tebing Tinggi DAP assemblyman Dr Abdul Aziz Bari, who retained his seat in GE15, was among the exco members in 2018 but this time around, his name is not on the list.

The sole Amanah candidate who retained his Sungai Rapat seat, Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin, is likely to be on the list as well.

Mohammad Nizar was the mentri besar during the 2009 Perak constitutional crisis and was appointed an exco member in 2018.

The most likely candidates from Umno are former exco members Datuk Mohd Zolkafly Harun (Lintang) and Datuk Shahrul Zaman Yahya (Rungkup).

The other possible name from Umno is Salbiah Mohamad (Temenggor).

The three are the most senior assemblymen among the eight from Umno.

In Saturday’s polling, Barisan won nine seats in the 59-seat state assembly. Pakatan clinched 24 seats while Perikatan Nasional won 26.
