SELANGOR Sultan Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah (picture) has consented not to dissolve the Selangor’s legislative assembly despite the dissolution of Parliament yesterday, Mentri Besar (MB) Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari said.

In a statement today, Amirudin said the consent was given during an audience he had with His Majesty at the Istana Bukit Kayangan in Shah Alam this morning.

“I have conveyed the state government’s commitment and preparation in facing the possible flooding in Selangor, economic recovery efforts, welfare assistance and preparation for the 2023 Selangor Budget —which will be tabled in the state assembly session this year,” he said.

Amirudin added that His Majesty would like to maintain the administration to ensure the wellbeing of the people in the state.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced the dissolution of the Parliament with the consent of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah, paving the way for the 15th General Election to be held within 60 days.
