PEKAN, Nov 28 — The Regent of Pahang Tengku Hassanal Ibrahim Alam Shah Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah today ordered the newly formed Barisan Nasional (BN) and Pakatan Harapan (PH) state government to put aside political ideology and sentiments.
Having agreed to form the state government, Tengku Hassanal said, the two coalitions should place the agenda on the state’s development and the people’s welfare as their priority.
“Now is no longer the time for politics, enough is enough. The election has ended and the state government has been formed, now is the time to work. In the process of achieving a developed state, the people no longer want to see you (elected representatives) continuing with politics, looking for faults here and there.
“On the other hand, the people want the elected representatives with positions in the government to bring about change so that Pahang continues to move forward,” said the Regent.
Tengku Hassanal said this at the presentation of instruments of appointment and swearing-in as Mentri Besar of Pahang by Jelai Assemblyman Datuk Seri Wan Rosdi at Balairung Seri Istana Abu Bakar here today. — Bernama
