Selangor to add another member into state exco line-up
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.
