Kota Tampan assemblyman Saarani Mohamad was sworn in as the 14th menteri besar of Perak at Istana Iskandariah in Kuala Kangsar today.

The swearing-in ceremony, before Perak ruler Sultan Nazrin Shah, was held at 11.20am.

Saarani, who is Perak Umno chairman, was also sworn in as a member of the state Dewan Negara.

He signed the letter of appointment, witnessed by Ipoh High Court Chief Judge Hisham Hashim and state secretary Suaidi Abdul Rahim.

Also present at the ceremony were the Raja Muda of Perak Raja Jaafar Raja Muda Musa and Raja Dihilir Perak Raja Iskandar Dzulkarnain Sultan Idris Shah.

Sultan Nazrin consented to Saarani’s appointment as menteri besar based on Article 16 Clause 2 (a) of the Perak constitution after finding that the Kota Tampan assemblyman was capable of gaining the majority support and confidence of the Perak state assembly.

Saarani replaces Ahmad Faizal Azumu who resigned on Dec 5 after failing to obtain the majority support of state assemblymen in a vote of confidence moved by Abd Manap Hashim (BN-Pengkalan Baru) at the state assembly sitting a day earlier.

Faizal secured only 10 votes, while 48 voted against him and one abstained.
