Ahmad Said Is Terengganu MB !

The Umno Supreme Council, which met here Thursday, has endorsed the appointment of Datuk Ahmad Said as the menteri besar of Terengganu.

The meeting was chaired by Prime Minister and Umno president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

Ahmad, 51, had received his instrument of appointment as the new menteri besar from the Regency Advisory Council at a closed-door ceremony at the Istana Tetamu in Kuala Terengganu on March 23.

He had received the instrument of appointment from the president of the council, Tengku Sri Panglima Raja Tengku Baderulzaman, with two members of the council -- Tengku Sri Laksamana Raja Tengku Sulaiman Sultan Ismail and former Federal Court judge Datuk Abdul Kadir Sulaiman -- as witnesses.

The acceptance of Ahmad's appointment puts paid to the reappointment of Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh, the Terengganu Umno Liaison Committee chairman, as the menteri besar. Idris had received the letter of appointment as menteri besar from Abdullah.

The appointment of Ahmad had received varied reaction, including opposition from 22 Terengganu Barisan Nasional (BN) assemblyman.


Umno president Abdullah Ahmad Badawi today said the party had asked former Terengganu menteri besar Idris Jusoh to accept the Terengganu palace’s decision to appoint Ahmad Said as the menteri besar.

The Umno general assembly and party elections will be held in December, Prime Minister and Umno president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said Thursday.

The party elections would be held as usual during the assembly, scheduled for Dec 16 to 20, he told a news conference after a four-hour meeting of the Umno supreme council at Menara Datuk Onn here.

Several Umno divisions had earlier proposed that the elections be postponed to June next year but some leaders were against the proposal.

The party's management committee, which met yesterday, also felt that the elections should be held this year.
