The Selangor state legislative assembly will not be dissolved before the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations, says Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari.

"I cannot imagine (the dissolution of the state assembly) in the near future... I can say that there will be no dissolution before Raya (Aidilfitri). 

"This is what I can confirm for Selangor," he told reporters after attending a bilateral meeting of the Pahang and Selangor state governments at Wisma Sri Pahang in Kuantan today.

Selangor, Penang, Negeri Sembilan, Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu are set to hold their state polls this year.

Meanwhile, Pahang Barisan Nasional (BN) and Pakatan Harapan (PH) have formed a Pahang unity government consultation council to strengthen the position of the government in the state.

The establishment of the council, which is jointly chaired by Pahang BN chairman Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail, who is also the Pahang menteri besar, and Amirudin, as the Pahang PH chairman, was reached last night during talks between the two parties.
 
Wan Rosdy and Amirudin issued a joint statement today saying the council would serve as a platform for discussions and policy negotiations to solve the people’s issues, to ensure the stability of the Pahang government throughout its entire term.

"Both parties also agreed to engage in regular meetings to discuss joint efforts, so that these will be in line with the government at the federal level," the statement added.
  
BN and PH agreed to form the Pahang government after the 15th general election which resulted in a hung assembly. 

BN and Perikatan Nasional obtained 17 seats each while PH won eight.
