Selangor Menteri Besar Mohamed Azmin Ali had announced that the post of deputy speaker would be filled by a PAS assemblyman as the previous deputy speaker, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, has been appointed a state executive councillor.

Yeoh also said that Morib assemblyman Hasnul Baharuddin and Hulu Kelang assemblyman Saari Sungib, who had been suspended from PAS, would remain as PAS assemblymen at the next sitting as she had not received any official letter from PAS.

“As far as we are concerned, I have no official letter from PAS and they remain as PAS assemblymen in the house. No change,” she said.

Hasnul and Saari were suspended from PAS for having expressed their support for Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as the candidate for Selangor menteri besar during the recent crisis, contrary to their party’s decision.
