Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim today admitted that he met with Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah about his stand on holding onto his position.

Khalid’s admission confirms earlier reports that he had met with the Sultan of Selangor after receiving a letter from PKR on his resignation early last month.

He said that he had explained his stand not to relinquish the post to the executive council.

“I have informed the Sultan and the exco of my intention,” he told a press conference after a meet-the-people session at Dewan Taman Mesra in Kajang.

It is now believed that his “intention” refers to his decision to remain as menteri besar.

Last week, Khalid announced that he will be contesting the PKR deputy president post in the party’s elections next month.
