IPOH, 30 March 2009: The swearing-in of 323 new councillors for local authorities (PBT) in Perak will be held on 15 April, State Health, Local Government, Consumer Affairs, Environment, Public Transport and Non-Muslim Affairs Committee chairperson Dr Mah Hang Soon said today.
He said 97 of those elected were representatives of non-governmental organisations, while the remaining were from political parties.
“Only one or two political parties have yet to send the names of their representatives for the purpose,” he told reporters today.
Mah advised councillors who had yet to relinquish the post to do so as the state executive council could revoke their appointments any time. — Bernama
