SHAH ALAM: Former Port Klang state assemblyman Badrul Hisham Abdullah who is in the centre of a controversial “tussle” for his seat, was barred from the emergency Selangor state assembly sitting on Monday, Jan 24.
Badrul, whose Port Klang state assembly seat was declared vacant last Wednesday, Jan 19 by Speaker Datuk Teng Chang Khim due to his alleged absence without leave, was barred from entering the emergency state assembly sitting by security, when he arrived at 10am.
However, he was allowed into the hall as an observer but since the seats allocated for observers was already filled, he sat at the media’s observation room.
Badrul Hisham however, was seen leaving the room about 20 minutes later.
Outside the state assembly hall, Badrul Hisham claimed that he was still the Port Klang state assemblyman since he has not received an official notification from the Election Commission (EC).
He claimed that EC deputy chairman Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar had informed him that he was still the Port Klang state assemblyman since there was no official directive from the EC that the seat was vacant.
“I attended the meeting today because I was invited via a notice dated Jan 11,” he said.
The state government proposed the amendment to its constitution following the appointment of Datuk Mohamed Khusrin Munawi as the state secretary effective Jan 1, by the Public Service Commission (PSC), without allegedly consulting Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.
The Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, had consented to the state assembly sitting on Jan 24. – Bernama
