Rozali Mohamud to become Seberang Perai mayor after council upgrade


Modified 16 Jun 2019, 6:47 am

Seberang Perai Municipal Council (MPSP) president Rozali Mohamud will be appointed as mayor once the MPSP is upgraded to city council status.

Penang exco Jagdeep Singh Deo said the decision on Rozali's appointment was made during the state executive council meeting last Wednesday.

However, Jagdeep said Rozali would officially be sworn in as the mayor after getting consent from the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah.

“The date of the swearing-in ceremony before the Penang governor Abdul Rahman Abbas will be announced later," he told reporters after opening the Local Authorities Budget Preparation Process Training Course in Butterworth today.

The upgrading of MPSP to a city council status has been agreed to and is expected to be announced by the federal government soon.

With MPSP attaining city council status, Penang will be the only state in Malaysia with all its local authorities having city council status. 

The Penang Island City Council (MBPP) received city council status in 2015.
