Swearing-In Of Perak MB Postponed

IPOH, March 13 (Bernama) — The swearing-in of a PAS state assemblyman as the new Perak Menteri Besar which was scheduled to be held at Istana Iskandariah, Kuala Kangsar this afternoon had been postponed.

The postponement was announced by the Comptroller of the Royal Household at the Istana Iskandariah, Datuk Seri Raja Mansor Raja Razman.

Perak PAS secretary Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin was initially scheduled to take his oath of office as the Menteri Besar before the Regent of Perak, Raja Dr Nazrin Shah at 4pm today.

Meanwhile, Istana Kinta said in a statement faxed to Bernama that the postponement was in view of the latest development that showed that the DAP, PKR and PAS had not reached a strong consensus in forming the coalition government.

The statement, signed by the Private Secretary to the Sultan of Perak, Datuk Abdul Rahim Mohamad Nor, said that Raja Dr Nazrin Shah had ordered that the swearing-in ceremony be postponed.
