Selangor exco formula - my humble suggestion
According to a New Straits Times report today, this formula is unworkable because PKR intends to allocate two exco positions to non-Muslims.
Should DAP have four exco members, the exco would end up with a non-Muslim majority - a scenario which is not favoured by the Selangor palace, reported the daily.
Malaysiakini reported that PKR is expected to nominate Lee Kim Sin (Kajang), Dr Xavier Jayakumar (Seri Andalas), Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad (Seri Setia) Yaakob Sapari (Kota Anggerik) and Haniza Mohd Talha (Taman Medan) for the five posts.
It was further reported that the four DAP names submitted for exco posts includes Ean Yong, Liu, Teresa Kok (Kinrara) and Teng Chang Khim (Sungai Pinang).
“PAS is believed to have nominated their Selangor chief Dr Hasan Ali (Gombak Setia) and Dr Halimah Ali (Selat Kelang).”
While we respect the concern of HRH Sultan of Selangor, this dilemma could be solved if each party can drop one exco seat to become PKR 3, DAP 3 and PAS 1 from the original 4-4-2 formation.
With that, we will have 5 Malay excos (including MB himself) with 3 non-Malay excos. Fair to all.
If this is not workable, then we proceed with 5-3-2 for two years and revert to 4-4-2 for the remaining two/three years.
After all, the line up should be reshuffled after a certain time period, just like we have cabinet reshuffle after one or two years Cabinet members in office.
