KUALA LUMPUR: The Chief Secretary to the Government, Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan, clarified that the appointment of Datuk Mohd Khusrin Munawi as Selangor State Secretary is proper and legal and not based on political inputs.

The appointment was made according to provisions of the Federal Constitution, the Selangor Constitution and Promotion Board of the Civil Service Regulations 2010, with elements of consultation with the Selangor Government through the State Secretary, Datuk Ramli Mahmud.

"In this appointment, I did not take any political input and did not refer to anyone in the federal administration, including the Prime Minister.

"The exercise was carried out professionally, involving only the Chief Secretary to the Government (and the Promotions Board) and the Selangor Government," he said in a statement Wednesday.

I think if the MB and his Exco cannot work with the Selangor SS, then best that they dissolve the Dewan Undangan Negeri and have fresh elections as this is not a legal problem it is a political problem.
