Khalid revealed that PKR and DAP were not being exactly truthful in their insistence for the Selangor palace to accept Dr Wan Azizah as his replacement.

It has now boiled down to a showdown between Anwar and the gang against the Selangor Palace.
Last night, just about an hour before midnight, PKR and DAP issued a statement that they are maintaining their insistence to nominate only the former's president DS Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as menteri besar.
It was a clear cut open rebellion against the palace.
Their claims that they were abiding to the Sultan's call for them to observe convention were twisted and insulting as it was clear to all that the monarch's intent for conventions to be observed had actually meant that the Royal Highness wanted options other than Dr Wan Azizah as his menteri besar.
Earlier in the day, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, as the Ruler of the State had decreed that Pakatan must present at least three names for the post.
It's a subtle inference that His Royal Highness was not willing to be pushed around by the Pakatan coalition over the matter.
Outgoing menteri besar, TS Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, who was at the centre of the crisis the past weeks has now retreated into the background as Pakatan now trains its guns at the Istana Bukit Kayangan.
It is now for the people of Selangor to decide whether they want to side with their Sultan who reside at Istana Bukit Kayangan or Anwar, who wants to solidify his grip on the State from his Istana Segambut by having his wife as menteri besar.
As PM DS Najib Razak said yesterday, the people of Selangor must assess the political crisis in the state rationally and weigh for themselves what would be best for them and the state.
This particular advise, I think is most pertinent for Pas to consider, especially so since its leadership being the only one from Pakatan not yet to decide on whether to join the fight against the Sultan.
