No one else in Pakatan Harapan knew what was going on with PKR and the selection of a new MB for Selangor.
The Ijok Assemblyman Idris Ahmad has been going around waving letters saying that he should be the MB of Selangor. Idris said he had the backing of all of Pakatan Harapan including PKR. Then lo and behold the Sultan went and appointed Amiruddin something as the new MB.
Today M'kini has revealed that the Sultan said he received a letter directly from Wan Azizah the president of PKR saying that they wanted Amiruddin something as the MB. Plus that their letter supersedes the previous letters.
Here is the story from Mkini - screenshotted. No truncating.
Obviously there is some liwatting going on here.
In the appointment of the Prime Minister there was an insistence that clear written evidence be provided that the relevant parties (owners of 112 seats in Parliament) had agreed to the appointment of Tun Dr Mahathir as the PM.
Despite such written assurances being provided, the appointment of the PM was delayed.
Here, the PH component parties in Selangor had again issued separate letters of support for the MB candidate - Idris Ahmad.
However one party PKR then issued yet another letter, stating their preference for MB. This letter from one party alone has prevailed over the others.
The Selangor State Assembly has 56 seats.
PH has won 51, BN has 4 while PAS has 1.
Among PH, the PKR has 28 seats. DAP has 14 seats. Amanah has 5 while PPBM has 4. (Thank you to Hairball for correcting me on this. I hope you are correct.)
Still (despite 28 seats) no single political party has a clear majority to form the state government by itself in Selangor. This is now quite puzzling.
How did Wan Azizah's letter prevail?
However it is not likely that there will be any no confidence vote against the MB in Selangor. Or Perlis.
