By Lim Guan Eng, Secretary General of the DAP

azmin-ali-650x400The DAP CEC at its emergency meeting on 22 September 2014 decided to endorse the statement made by PKR President Dato’ Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail withdrawing herself from the position of Selangor Menteri Besar in light of the royal decree by DYMM Sultan Selangor to appoint PKR Deputy President YB Mohamed Azmin Ali as the new Selangor MB.

The DAP CEC also decided to support Dato’ Seri Dr Wan Azizah’s proposal to the PKR leadership to recommend YB Mohamed Azmin Ali as the new Selangor Menteri Besar in line with the DAP’s CEC clear and consistent position that the candidate for Selangor MB must be from PKR.

In view that Dato’ Seri Wan Azizah commanded majority support from the Selangor Assemblypersons with 30 out of 56 State Assembly, her decision to now back YB Azmin Ali would also be consistent with the DAP’s firm and principled position that the Selangor Menteri Besar (YB Azmin Ali) must command majority support from the Selangor State Assembly.

For these reasons DAP CEC has decided to instruct our 15 DAP Assemblypersons to support YB Azmin Ali as the new Selangor MB.

DAP expresses regret at the 4 PAS Selangor Exco members for their betrayal of the principles of solidarity and democracy as well as failing to stand loyally together with the 6 DAP and PKR EXCO members who were unjustly sacked by the previous Menteri Besar who had lost majority support of the Selangor State Assembly.

DAP hopes that the resolution of the Selangor political crisis and the appointment of YB Azmin Ali as the new Selangor Menteri Besar can fulfill the promise of a better Selangor that can provide justice, freedom and economic prosperity for all.
