PETALING JAYA: DAP has four representatives in the 10-member Selangor state executive council (exco), with PKR having three and Amanah two.
For the first time in 15 years, Barisan Nasional will be represented in the state government, according to a list of exco members issued by the office of Selangor menteri besar Amirudin Shari.
The 10 executive councillors took their oaths of office before Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah at Istana Alam Shah in Klang today.
Amirudin, who was sworn in earlier today, said he will chair his first exco meeting at noon on Wednesday, during which he will also announce the portfolios of all exco members.
The four DAP assemblymen are Ng Sze Han (Kinrara), Ng Suee Lim (Sekinchan), Jamaliah Jamaluddin (Bandar Utama) and V Papparaidu (Banting).
The three PKR representatives are Fahmi Ngah (Seri Setia), Najwan Halimi (Kota Anggerik) and Borhan Aman Shah (Tanjung Sepat), while Amanah is represented by Izham Hashim (Pandan Indah) and Anfaal Saari (Taman Templer).
BN is represented by Umno’s Sungai Air Tawar assemblyman Rizam Ismail.
Suee Lim was the speaker of the Selangor legislative assembly during the last term. Sze Han, Izham and Borhan had previously served as executive councillors, while the other six are new faces in the state government.
The PH-BN coalition won 34 of the 56 seats in the state election on Aug 12, with Perikatan Nasional claiming the remaining 22.
In a Bernama report, Amirudin said PH and BN have succeeded in passing the first test during the Aug 12 state election despite failing to obtain a two-thirds majority.
“We have 12 more seats compared to the opposition, and this is a good start,” he said.
