IPOH: Perak Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad will be sworn in as Perak Menteri Besar this afternoon after Barisan Nasional (BN) and Pakatan Harapan (PH) agreed to work together to form the state government.
Member of the Perak National Assembly, Tan Sri Annuar Zaini said, the swearing-in ceremony will be held at Iskandariah Palace, Bukit Chandan Kuala Kangsar at 5.30 this afternoon.
According to him, the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah gave approval for Saarani’s swearing-in ceremony as menteri besar after PH and BN had the majority of members of the state legislative assembly to form the government.
“Your Majesty is satisfied with what was presented by the representatives of PH and BN and they only put forward one candidate as Menteri Besar, which is Kota Tampan assemblyman, Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad.
“Because there was an understanding, PN accepted the name submitted.
“Considering the importance of the State Legislative Assembly meeting immediately to approve the Budget, my lord is concerned for Saarani to be sworn in as menteri besar at Istana Iskandariah at 5.30 this afternoon,” he said in a press conference here today.
Annuar said, to be fair, my lord also allowed Perikatan Nasional (PN) representatives Razman Zakaria and Datuk Zainol Fadzi Paharuddin to appear since they have the largest seats, 26 DUNs, and are capable of forming a government.
“They admit that there are no numbers to form a government and understand that my lord has to act according to the laws of the state body that his majesty trusts that assemblymen who have a majority are allowed to be appointed as Menteri Besar,” he said.
In GE15, PN won 26 seats, PH 24 seats and BN only nine seats. – MESSENGER
