SHAH ALAM, Thurs:

PKR secretary-general Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim was sworn-in as the 14th Selangor Menteri Besar before Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah at Istana Bukit Kayangan here today. He also signed the appointment letter witnessed by Shah Alam High Court Judge Datuk Syed Ahmad Helmy Syed Ahmad.

Present were State Secretary Datuk Ramli Mahmud, Legal Adviser Datuk Zauyah T. Lothy Khan, Finance Officer Datuk Mohd Ariff Abdul Rahman, Selangor Pas commissioner Datuk Dr Hasan Mohd Ali and DAP representative Teresa Kok.

Speaking to reporters later, Khalid said the Sultan wanted smooth running of the public service machinery and state administration, and did not want to see abrupt changes among senior officers and other state employees.

On the appointment of a deputy menteri besar, he said that under the Laws of the Constitution of Selangor 1959, His Majesty could appoint a deputy menteri besar from among state executive councillors on the menteri besar�s advice.

However, he added: �Presently, I don�t plan to advise His Majesty the Sultan to appoint a deputy menteri besar to assist me in carrying out my duties and functions as Menteri Besar.�
His first task as Menteri Besar, Khalid said, was to identify assemblymen from the PKR, Pas and DAP who would sit in the State Executive Council as the Sultan had asked him to submit the list before March 22.

He said the number of state executive councillors would remain 10 including the menteri besar.

Meanwhile, Private Secretary to the Sultan of Selangor Datuk Mohamad Munir Bani said that since Khalid had not advised His Majesty on the appointment of a deputy menteri besar, the question of whether the deputy menteri besar could be a non-Malay did not arise.
