BATU PAHAT – State executive councillor (exco) Sallehen Mokhyi (pic) has denied he is the choice of the Selangor Palace to replace Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim as the new Menteri Besar of Selangor.
Sallehan, who is also Selangor Deputy Commissioner (I), was surrounded by journalists as soon as he concluded his speech to debate the address of PAS president Datuk Seri Hadi Awang at the 60th PAS General Assembly in Parit Raja, here today.
“No, not me. We don’t know yet (the name of the new Menteri Besar of Selangor). I have no information yet (on the new Menteri Besar). Will be announced Monday morning or Tuesday. Its definitely not me,” he said.
Other than Sallehan, also named as PAS’ candidates to replace Khalid as Menteri Besar were Dr Ahmad Yunus Hairi and Iskandar Abdul Samad, both state excos.
Iskandar is also Selangor PAS Commissioner. – Bernama
