PMO: Proposal for PM's ex-secretary as EC number two withdrawn


Modified 7 Nov 2016, 1:51 pm

A proposal to appoint Shukry Mohd Salleh, former principal private secretary to the prime minister, as Election Commission deputy chairperson was not tabled and discussed at the last meeting of the Conference of Rulers, it was stated today.

Media director in the Prime Minister's Office Tengku Sariffuddin Tengku Ahmad explained that the proposal paper was withdrawn and this was relayed to the Keeper of the Rulers' Seal, Syed Danial Syed Ahmad, before the meeting of the Conference of Rulers.

"The statement of Selangor Menteri Besar Mohamed Azmin Ali in the Selangor legislative assembly session on Nov 3 that the proposal was rejected by the Conference of Rulers does not arise and is not true at all," he said in a statement.
