SHAH ALAM: Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said, he would issue a statement after his audience with Sultan Sharafuddin and also he would seek a meeting with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to discuss his appointment as Economic Affairs Minister.
He said the meeting would likely take place either tonight or tomorrow.
“I did not know until just now... I thank the prime minister for his belief in me. I have informed Sultan of Selangor (Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah) about the appointment and that I would be seeking a meeting with Dr Mahathir to seek clarification about my appointment,” he said.
Azmin said the meeting would be to discuss the scope of his duties as a federal minister.
“After the meeting, I will again seek an audience with Sultan Sharafuddin to decide where my role and responsibilities should lie, whether to stay in Selangor (as MB) or to move to the federal level.
“What is certain is that the responsibilities of duties at federal level are heavy, considering we are trying to revive the nation’s economy,” he said, adding that he would not hold both the state and federal positions simultaneously.
