AYER KEROH – Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali will follow the order from the Barisan Nasional (BN) top leadership, if there is a need to involve the two representatives from Perikatan Nasional (PN) in the administration of Melaka government.
The Lendu State Assemblyman said that he needs to discuss with the party leadership before making any decision.
“I need to have a meeting first. I must discuss with the top leadership of the party. We competed solo this round, not in PN.
“I will follow whatever decision that is made by the top leadership,” he told the journalists at the Chief Minister’s Office this morning.
Sulaiman, 55 was appointed as the 13th Chief Minister of Melaka after BN won the state election on 20 November. He began his official duty at the Seri Negeri Building at around 8.35 am this morning.
He managed to defend the N04 Lendu seat after garnering 4,486 votes with a majority of 3,104 votes in a three-corner fight.
He defeated his opponents, the candidate from PN, Major Abdullah Mahadi who got 1,382 votes and the candidate from Pakatan Harapan (PH), Asri Ibrahim who only managed to get 1,155 votes. -MalaysiaGazette
