Khalid Ibrahim: Sultan consented to dissolution, date to be known later

SHAH ALAM: The Sultan of Selangor has consented to the dissolution of the state assembly but the date will be announced at a later date, said Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim after an audience with Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah on Wednesday.

Khalid said the dissolution of the state assembly was among several matters he discussed with the Sultan.

“We discussed a few matters, including the strategy on the dissolution of the state assembly,” he told reporters after chairing the state exco meeting.

The press conference was attended by the entire state executive council fueling speculation that he might announce the date of the dissolution.

Normally, only two or three exco members would accompany Khalid at the weekly press conference.

Tuanku (His Majesty/Sire) does not object to the dissolution of the state assembly. Tuanku has agreed that I shall (NOT will) announce the dissolution at the right time. He wants it to be done in a proper, civil and organised manner,” Khalid said.

Last month, Khalid said he may dissolve the state assembly after Chap Goh Meh if there is no indication by the federal government on the dissolution of Parliament.

The Selangor state assembly will automatically dissolve on April 22.
