Now, this is a Sultan who knows what his rakyat wants, Eli has worked hard and was noticed by the Sultan of Selangor. I am sure the Sultan wants Selangor to prosper and to have that, the Sultan requires people who are committed and not corrupted. So, MB Khalid, the final decision is yours, don't screw up.
Star 25 Feb 2009 SHAH ALAM: Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah of Selangor is above politics and will leave it to Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim to decide the fate of his exco member Elizabeth Wong, who is now abroad, over a photo scandal.
The Sultan’s private secretary Datuk Mohamad Munir Bani said the Sultan believed that whatever decision Khalid was going make, it would be done accurately, fairly and with wisdom.
He added that the decision would take into consideration the interest of the people of the state.
He said this in a statement released after Khalid had an audience with the Sultan at Istana Mestika at 8.23am Tuesday. He said Sultan Sharafuddin was concerned of late over cases of privacy rights intrusions being used to destroy a person’s dignity and reputation.
The Sultan also felt sad that a person’s private was being made through the use of the mass media and that he hoped that Wong would remain calm and be patient and continue with her life.
Wong tendered her resignation as exco member and PKR's Bukit Lanjan assemblyman recently, after some compromising photos of her were sent to the media.
The state and PKR have yet to accept her resignation and Khalid had said last week that the decision to accept or reject Wong’s resignation would be made only after an audience with the Sultan.
