Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said he is seeking an audience with Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah following the offer by state executive councillor and Bukit Lanjan assemblywoman Elizabeth Wong to resign after nude pictures of her appeared on the Internet on Monday.
Khalid said he had received Wong's letter.
In a statement issued yesterday, the menteri besar said he would brief the Sultan on the turn of events and seek his guidance on the issue.
He said that in view of the trying circumstances and the obvious stress she was going through, Wong had been told to go on leave and take a deserved rest.
Khalid described the current events as unfortunate as she had been an exemplary executive councillor.
"It is most unfortunate that certain elements have resorted to such despicable acts to smear her name and integrity. I am sure Malaysians and the people of Selangor will reject the use of such shameful tactics and join me in condemning the desperate people responsible."
