Dr Idris Ahmad claims that he had the full support from all four component parties in the Pakatan Harapan-led state for the position of Selangor Mentri Besar.
"As of June 4, yes. There were letters from all four parties sent. In fact I was the only one. But whatever subsequently happened after that I wouldn't know," he said during a press conference at his house here Tuesday.
Dr Idris reiterated that he has the full backing of all the component parties, namely PKR, DAP, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia and Parti Amanah Negara, regarding the post.
Dr Idris confirmed that the three names included his own, Sungai Tua assemblyman Amiruddin Shari and Seri Setia assemblyman Dr Shaharuddin Badaruddin.
While feeling sad about the choice of Mentri Besar, Dr Idris stated that he would continue with his duties as usual and work with anyone.
"I'm not invited (to the swearing) so maybe I'm not the chosen one. The final say comes from the Sultan. Of course I'm sad but life must go on.
The PKR intra-party struggle between the Pandan Cats and the Gombak Dwaves continue, with the Dwarves somehow gaining royal approval and political ascendancy.
