SHAH ALAM – The Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, has granted an audience tomorrow to Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali to discuss and resolve state administrative matters.
According to the Ruler’s private secretary, Datuk Mohamad Munir Bani, the audience would be held at Istana Bukit Kayangan here at 11 am before Mohamed Azmin leaves for a one-week ‘umrah’ pilgrimage on Wednesday.
