Johor Lama rep dropped from Johor exco line-up in reshuffle, four portfolios unchanged


JOHOR BARU: Johor Lama assemblyman Norlizah Nor, who was state education, information and communication committee chairman, has been dropped from the Johor exco line-up.

This comes following a reshuffle of the Johor exco line-up, which also saw the swearing-in of Tanjung Surat assemblyman Aznan Tamin as an exco member.

In a statement, Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi said he believes the restructuring and new appointment would bring the state forward.

"I would like to thank His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim, King of Malaysia for giving consent to the new appointment and the portfolio restructuring of the state executive line-up for 2024 to 2027.
