SHAH ALAM: April 22, 2008

DAP’s Sungai Pinang assemblyman Teng Chang Khim was sworn in as the Selangor State Assembly Speaker on Tuesday.

In taking his oath, Teng vowed to give his loyalty to the state and its sovereign as well as do his best in his capacity as the Speaker.

Also sworn in was PKR’s Taman Medan assemblyman Haniza Talha as the deputy Speaker.

Fifty-five of the fifty-six state assemblymen were also sworn in at the ceremony, which lasted for about two-and-a-half-hours.
