SHAH ALAM, 14 Mei (Bernama) -- Istiadat mengangkat sumpah jawatan Menteri

Besar Selangor di Istana Alam Shah Klang hari ini menampilkan kelainan kerana ia

disertai lafaz aku janji oleh pemegang jawatan Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

Sambil memegang tombak "Sang Buana" yang bersalut kain kuning, Abdul Khalid

melafazkan 10 Aku janji di hadapan Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah pada istiadat

di Balai Rong Seri.

Aku janji itu antara lain menjunjung tinggi prinsip Rukun Negara serta

memelihara dan melindungi kesucian serta keagungan agama Islam sebagai agama

negeri.

Menteri Besar juga berjanji mematuhi kedaulatan Institusi Raja dan

mempertahankannya daripada digugat oleh mana-mana pihak selain berjanji untuk

melaksanakan tugas dengan integriti yang tinggi, penuh rasa tanggungjawab,

amanah, jujur dan ikhlas, serta memelihara hak istimewa orang Melayu.

Istiadat angkat sumpah Menteri Besar Selangor sebelum ini tidak disertakan

lafaz aku janji dan keperluan memegang tombak.

Setiausaha Sulit kepada Sultan Selangor Datuk Mohamad Munir Bani yang

dihubungi berkata tombak yang dipegang oleh Abdul Khalid itu dipanggil "Sang

Buana" dan ia merupakan lambang kuasa baginda Sultan.

"Abdul Khalid memegang tombak itu semasa lafaz Aku janji sebagai simbol

menjunjung kuasa Tuanku.

"Aku janji itu dibuat (disediakan) oleh Tuanku sendiri bukannya oleh

Kerajaan Negeri," kata Mohamad Munir.

(PR) yang dilantik sebagai Menteri Besar Selangor.

Kesemua 13 Menteri Besar Selangor sebelum ini daripada Umno, parti komponen

utama Barisan Nasional (BN).

kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Selangor.
