Ahmad Said finally sworn in as Terengganu Menteri Besar

Kijal state assemblyman Datuk Ahmad Said was sworn in today as the new menteri besar of Terengganu, bringing to an end the dispute over the appointment of the state's menteri besar that erupted on March 10.

All the 22 Barisan Nasional (BN) assemblymen who had not supported Ahmad's appointment as well as former menteri besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, the BN's candidate for the post, attended the swearing-in ceremony.

The eight PAS state assemblymen also attended the ceremony, held three days after the Umno Supreme Council's endorsedment of Ahmad's appointment by the Terengganu Regency Advisory Council.

Here's the rest of the Bernama report:

Another swearing-in ceremony will be held, in about 10 days, for the state executive councillors after Ahmad prepares the line-up.

The BN won 24 of the 32 state seats in Terengganu. The remaining eight seats were won by PAS.

The Umno supreme council's endorsement of the appointment of Ahmad overruled the reappointment of Idris as menteri besar for the second term though he had received an appointment letter from the prime minister. Ahmad received his letter of appointment from the Regency Advisory Council at a closed-door ceremony at the Istana Tetamu here on March 23.

The letter was handed to him by the president of the council, Tengku Sri Panglima Raja Tengku Baderulzaman, with council members Tengku Sri Laksamana Raja Tengku Sulaiman Sultan Ismail and former Federal Court judge Datuk Abdul Kadir Sulaiman as witnesses.

Two days after receiving the letter of appointment, Ahmad took office as the menteri besar at Wisma Darul Iman, the administrative centre of the Terengganu government.

Ahmad did not use the office of the menteri besar on the 16th floor of the 18-storey building but used the office on the sixth floor that he had occupied as the state executive councillor in charge of local government and housing in the previous administration.

Apa sudah jadi?
Bukan kah kesemua 23 ADUN telah berjanji dan menandatangani surat sokongan untuk terus menyokong Deris Jusoh walau apa pun yang terjadi.

Mereka juga telah membuat pengakuan terbuka untuk meletak jawatan sebagai ADUN jika Idris Jusoh tidak dilantik menjadi MB.

These 22 state assemblyneb are real jokers.First they support Idris, swore allegiance to him and poked fun at Ahmad Said.

Now they attended the swearing-in ceremony.

Spineless bunch of goons and Hypocrits of the highest order.

Kalau berani, resign lah. Pengecut!

By the way, did they apologise to the Tuanku?
