ISKANDAR PUTERI: The new line-up of the Johor state executive council (exco) is likely to be announced tomorrow, said Johor Pakatan Harapan chairman Muhyiddin Yassin.

Muhyiddin, who is also PPBM president, said the list was submitted to the Sultan of Johor Sultan Ibrahim during an audience at Istana Pasir Pelangi this morning.

Present at the audience with the Johor Sultan was newly-appointed Johor Menteri Besar Dr Sahruddin Jamal, who is also Johor PPBM secretary.

“The menteri besar submitted the new exco line-up and, if I’m not mistaken, it has received the Ruler’s consent and I’m grateful.

“This means, with the new exco line-up led by the menteri besar in place, the state administration will run more smoothly.

“Everything that has been planned will continue.

“I expressed my willingness to give my views and opinions if asked about ways we can take so that Johor continues to progress,” he told reporters after meeting Sahruddin at the menteri besar’s office in Kota Iskandar here.
