PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's attempt to take over Selangor's top job may not play out as planned, as the incumbent Menteri Besar, or Chief Minister, is not ready to go.

According to high-level sources, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim was to sign a post-dated letter of resignation drawn up by the party leadership, but he has avoided doing so.

The letter is believed to be dated March 23, the day Kajang voters go to the polls.

It is premised on the assumption that Mr Anwar will win the Kajang by-election, join the Selangor Legislative Assembly and move into the post of Menteri Besar.
