PETALING JAYA: PKR has officially backed party leader Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail for the Selangor Mentri Besar post, the Star reported this morning.

However, details will only be discussed at the Pakatan Presidential Council on Wednesday and revealed later, said PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil.

The political drama in Selangor has dragged on for months, since the "Kajang move" was engineered as part of a strategy to remove Mr Khalid from the post.

Dr Wan Azizah came into the picture after she won the Kajang by-election and was tipped to be next MB.
