Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim has confirmed that Bukit Lanjan assemblyman and state executive councillor Elizabeth Wong, is on a flight back to Malaysia today from an unspecified location.
It was reported earlier that Khalid will be meeting with Wong this week.
He told reporters that he has not spoken to Wong since he has been busy with the state assembly.
“We want to have a real meeting. I have to spare her enough time to meet her. She wanted to come today but I suggested to her that we meet this weekend so that we will be able to have a sit in.”
Wong has offered to quit both as a state legislator and executive council member, following the public distribution semi-nude photographs of her.
Wong’s unpaid leave expired yesterday but Khalid said that he had the discretion to extend the leave. She also has permission from the Speaker to not attend the state assembly.
“She says that she will not be attending as our session will end either tomorrow or the day after. That is the reason why I do not need to see her these two days, because she is still on leave as far as the state assembly is concerned.”
