Ahmad Said to be Terengganu Menteri Besar (Chief Minister or MB)

According to theStar Online, the UMNO Supreme Council meeting has given its support for Ahmad Said, the Terengganu Kijal State Assemblyman, as the new Menteri Besar (MB or Chief Minister) of Terengganu, which hopefully now has helped avert a Constitutional crisis. The Terengganu Palace's choice for the post of Menteri Besar was Ahmad Said while initially, the other UMNO state assemblymen and Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was Idris Jusoh, the former Terengganu Menteri Besar who was reported as having incurred the wrath of the Terengganu Palace.

Hopefully, the swearing in of the Terengganu Menteri Besar will take place soon, followed by the appointment of the State Exco (Executive Committee) and the formation of Terengganu State Government.
