ARAU, May 24 (Bernama) -- Datuk Seri Azlan Man took his oath as the menteri besar of the new Perlis government at Istana Arau today in a ceremony unattended by the nine other Barisan Nasional state assemblymen.
The three Pakatan Harapan and two PAS state assemblymen attended the swearing-in before the Raja of Perlis, Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Putra Jamalullail.
The BN had won 10 of the 15 seats in the state legislative assembly in the general election on May 9. Pakatan Harapan had won three seats and PAS, two.
Azlan, when approached after the event, said he was committed to discharging his duties as the menteri besar well and hoped to get the full support of the other elected representatives, especially the BN assemblymen, to realise the Perlis development agenda.
He also said that he would consult BN acting chairman and UMNO acting president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and UMNO acting deputy president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein on the best formula to appoint the state executive councillors.....
