Khalid refutes text messages, says not resigning as Mentri Besar

There is no truth to text messages circulated on Monday alleging that Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim ( is resigning from his position as Selangor Mentri Besar.

“There is no such thing. I just had a meeting with the state economic planning unit and will be having another meeting later,” Khalid informed reporters at the lobby of Bangunan Darul Ehsan (SUK 2) on Monday.

The Mentri Besar also laughed off suggestions that the messages could be the work of rivals from PKR.
“This is the fasting month and it is not appropriate for me to speculate. But the story is not true,” he said.
Khalid also asked for speculation on his position to be put to rest.

On Monday, text messages were circulated claiming that Khalid would tender his resignation letter to the Selangor Sultan.

A message, which allegedly quoted Bernama, said that Khalid had sent his resignation letter to the Sultan and would be replaced by Pas exco Iskandar Samad.

Bernama have denied the message was from the news agency. Iskandar, when contacted, also denied he would replace Khalid.

Earlier, journalists flocked to the Kayangan, Mestika and Alam Shah palaces in Shah Alam and Klang.
