KUALA TERENGGANU: Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar today said that he is still the Menteri Besar (MB) of Terengganu.

“I woke this morning and I am still the Menteri Besar, although there seem to be pictures of 10 menteris besar changing by the hour,” he quipped when met by reporters after visiting the family of Jusoh Muda, 83, who perished in a fire in Kampung Losong Haji Su on Monday.

Ahmad Samsuri said the issue of an impending new MB keenly debated at the moment did not arise.

“People who slander [on the issue of changing the MB] perhaps tend to forget about the fires of hell,” he said.

Last Tuesday, PAS Terengganu lodged a police report against a news portal for its report that implied that Ahmad Samsuri’s position as the MB was hanging in the balance.

His political secretary Muhyiddin Abdul Rashid said the news report was deemed defamatory and malicious and written to tarnish the credibility of the MB’s leadership. -BERNAMA
