Using his speech to attack Pakatan Rakyat, the Sultan said Khalid had executed the duties of a mentri besar “successfully and perfectly” and that the leadership crisis was triggered by Pakatan  Rakyat’s plans to oust Khalid  by engineering a by-election in Kajang to allow  de facto opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to enter the fray.
He said repeated accusations had been aimed at Khalid to force him to step down and that the tactic had been employed through the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan despite the palace’s reminders about maintaining the sanctity of the month.
“But PKR still carried on their agenda even during the holy month of Ramadhan by insulting and hurling accusations until they were successful in their attempt to remove Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim as Selangor mentri besar,” the Sultan said today after a ceremony to swear in the new executive state councillors.
Khalid has had a “good and smooth working relationship with the palace,” the Sultan added
The Sultan should also chide DAP for its strong and overwhemling support for Anwar wrongdoings.
Now we wait and see how this Azmin performs
