Gerakan Youth says appointment of Selangor MB not up to Anwar or PKR

Gerakan Youth today says that the appointment of the Selangor Menteri Besar was not the right of PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim or the party.
The movement’s chief Tan Keng Liang, in a statement today, referred to the announcement by Anwar that PKR had agreed to appoint party president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as the new Menteri Besar of Selangor.
Tan said that according to Article 53 (2)(a) of the Selangor State Constitution, the appointment of the Menteri Besar is the right of the Sultan of Selangor and he had the right to determine who in the State Legislative Assembly commands the support of the majority.
Gerakan Youth  expressed disappointment with the action of Anwar and PKR in announcing the change in the Menteri Besar post without getting the consent of the Sultan of Selangor.
Tan said the announcement of the change without the consent of the Sultan was thus in breach of the Selangor State Constitution principles.
It was also a “rude” act.

Tan said Gerakan Youth urged PKR and Anwar to respect the Selangor State Constitution.
