Se­lan­gor to add an­other mem­ber into state exco line-up

The Star Malaysia - - Nation -

SHAH ALAM: An­other mem­ber will be ap­pointed to the state exco line-up in­stead of a reshuf­fle, said the Se­lan­gor Men­tri Be­sar.

The new exco mem­ber will re­place the late Prof Dr Sha­harud­din Badarud­din, who passed away on Aug 2 due to can­cer.

Deny­ing re­ports of a reshuf­fle, Amirudin Shari said the new mem­ber was needed to com­plete the line-up.

“There’s no reshuf­fle – just adding an­other mem­ber to com­plete the 10 exco mem­ber quota to im­prove the ef­fec­tive­ness of the state gov­ern­ment’s ad­min­is­tra­tion.

“The ad­di­tional exco mem­ber is needed to fill the va­cant chair­man post for the com­mit­tee on Is­lamic Re­li­gious Af­fairs, Ed­u­ca­tion, Hu­man Cap­i­tal Devel­op­ment, Sci­ence, Tech­nol­ogy and In­no­va­tion,” he told re­porters at the Se­lan­gor Fire and Res­cue Depart­ment’s monthly gath­er­ing here.

He said he had yet to de­cide on the date to an­nounce the can­di­date.

Ear­lier, Amirudin pre­sented RM20,000 in aid from the state gov­ern­ment to the fam­i­lies of the six fire­men who drowned while search­ing for a teenager in Ta­man Pu­tra Per­dana, Pu­chong in Oc­to­ber.

On the re­lo­ca­tion of the Seafield Sri Maha Mari­amman Tem­ple, he said the state gov­ern­ment was still try­ing to get the views of other par­ties, in­clud­ing the tem­ple’s man­age­ment, be­fore find­ing a so­lu­tion.

“What­ever hap­pens, the so­lu­tion will not go against the rule of law if it in­volves a court de­ci­sion.

“We will de­fend the rule of law be­cause it is im­por­tant to us.

“Oth­er­wise, ev­ery­one will do what­ever they want,” he added.
