Khalid to decide on Eli Wong’s status after March 15 - Star

March 5, 2009

KUALA LUMPUR: Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim will decide on the status of embattled Bukit Lanjan assemblyman Elizabeth Wong after she returns from leave on March 15.

Wong, 37, had offered to resign as assemblyman and state executive councillor following the controversy over the distribution of embarassing pictures of her two weeks ago.

She has since taken a leave of absence and is currently believed to be overseas.

Khalid told reporters at Parliament lobby Thursday that any decision would only be made after she returned from leave.

“I will discuss (it) with her after March 15,” he said, adding that the discussion would involve her position in the state government and as a PKR assemblyman.

He also said that he was still waiting for the result of police investigations into the matter.

“I hope to hear from them before March 15,” he said.

Police had so far recorded statements from Wong and 12 individuals, including four journalists -- two each from the Malay Mail and theSun. -- Bernama
