PAS loses one Selangor exco post but gets deputy Speaker role

The number of seats for PAS representatives in the Selangor exco line-up has been reduced to three from the previous four.

The new line-up will include PKR's Elizabeth Wong (Bukit Lanjan), Dr Daroyah Alwi (Sementa), Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad (Seri Setia) and Amiruddin Shari (Batu Caves), along with DAP's Datuk Teng Chang Khim (Sg Panjang), Ean Yong Hian Wah (Seri Kembangan), V. Ganabatirau (Kota Alam Shah), who were all retained.

The three PAS exco members are Iskandar Samad (Cempaka), Dr Ahmad Yunus Hairi (Sijangkang) and Zaidy Abdul Talib (Tmn Templer).

Selat Kelang assemblyman Dr Halimah Ali and Sabak representative Sallehin Mukhyi are the PAS representatives who have been dropped.

Mentri Besar Azmin Ali, who revealed the names at a packed press conference Friday, said Nik Nazmi had relinquished his position as the state deputy speaker, adding that the position will be taken over by a PAS member.

"The portfolios of these members will be decided over the weekend," Azmin said.

The swearing-in ceremony will be held at the Istana Alam Shah at 3pm.
