However, the decision will be made by the highest leaders in Pakatan Rakyat, says Selangor Menteri Besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.
(Bernama) - Selangor Menteri Besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said the state government has proposed to dissolve the State Legislative Assembly after Chinese New Year, next month.
He said the decision, however, depended by the highest leaders in Pakatan Rakyat.
“If the Prime Minister [Najib Tun Razak] does not make any announcement or indicate a date for the general election after Chap Goh Meh, we plan to do this (dissolve the state assembly),” he said at a press conference after chairing the weekly executive council meeting, here today.
“We feel that the people who have chosen us are ready and they should not have to wait longer than necessary,” he added.
Commenting on the water issue, Khalid said the state government had written to Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister (Peter Chin Fah Kui), stating that it would take over water services from the Selangor concessionaire company.
“We’ve given the ministry 14 days from next Monday to respond on the matter and if they don’t, the takeover process will be carried out,” he said.
