MB respects exco members’ decision not to defend state seats

SHAH ALAM, July 5 — Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari respects the decision of three executive council (exco) members not to defend their respective seats in the upcoming state election.

They include the state executive councillor for investment, trade, industry and small-and-medium industries Dato’ Teng Chang Khim who is the incumbent Bandar Baru Klang state assemblyman, as well as the state executive councillor for public health, unity, women and family development Dr Siti Mariah Mahmud (Seri Serdang).

Another is the state executive councillor for socio-economic development, community welfare and workers’ empowerment V. Ganabatirau (Kota Kemuning).

“For me, it is a loss to Selangor, especially given their significant contributions and commendable work for the state.

“However, we believe it will provide an opportunity for new faces and ideas to continue administering and developing Selangor,” he said when contacted by Bernama today.

The media previously reported that three Selangor exco members have confirmed that they would not defend their respective seats in the state polls, namely Teng, Dr Siti Mariah and Ganabatirau.

The Election Commission today announced that polling for the state elections in Kedah, Kelantan, Terengganu, Penang, Selangor and Negeri Sembilan will be held simultaneously on August 12, while nomination on July 29.
