Estimate Reading Time: < 1 minute

SHAH ALAM: Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari will seek an audience with the Sultan of Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah for consent to dissolve the state legislative assembly before His Royal Highness leaves for the Haj pilgrimage.


Amirudin, however, said that he was waiting for an appropriate date to do so.

“If I can’t make it (audience), then I will go to Madinah (to seek consent), but I will try to avoid that situation, meaning I will try to seek an audience before His Royal Highness leaves for the Holy Land,” he told the media after attending the Selangor Mobility forum here on Thursday (June 15).

Sultan Sharafuddin and Tengku Permaisuri Selangor Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin are scheduled to leave for Saudi Arabia next week to perform the Haj.

The dissolution of the Selangor legislative assembly is to pave the way for the state election to be held.


In another development, Amirudin who is also Selangor Pakatan Harapan (PH) chairman, said negotiations for three more state seats between PH and Barisan Nasional (BN) will be held either Thursday or Friday (June 16).

Without naming the seats concerned, Amirudin said the talks will provide fair opportunities to all political partners with winning strategy being the primary factor.

“Every party must be big-hearted enough to view (the importance of) winnability, to ensure a simple or a comfortable majority win,” he said.- Bernama
