Terengganu state assembly convenes with no Opposition bloc

KUALA TERENGGANU: The 15th Terengganu State Legislative Assembly which convened on Sunday (Oct 1) made history with the absence of an Opposition bloc.

This is after Perikatan Nasional made a clean sweep of all seats in the state election last August.

The Terengganu's Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin consented for the First Session of the 15th State Legislative Assembly to convene on Sunday.

Also present were Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar, state assembly speaker Mohd Nor Hamzah and his deputy Khazan Che Mat.

In the state election on Aug 12, the PAS-Bersatu alliance created history when it swept all 32 seats, leaving Terengganu without an opposition for the first time since the country achieved independence. – Bernama
