Role

edit

As the state's legislative body, the Selangor State Legislative Assembly's main function is to enact laws that apply to Selangor, known as enactments. The Speaker presides over the Assembly's proceedings, and works to maintain order during debates. The present Speaker is Lau Weng San of the Democratic Action Party (DAP) and the Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition.

The state government's executive branch (known as the Selangor State Executive Council (EXCO), or Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri), including the Menteri Besar, are drawn from the Assembly. The Menteri Besar is ceremonially appointed by the Sultan of Selangor on the basis that he is able to command a majority in the Assembly. The Menteri Besar then appoints members of the State EXCO drawing from members of the Assembly.

Selcat

edit

The Speaker also chairs the Select Committee on Competency, Accountability and Transparency (Selcat), a six-member panel consisting of state assemblymen which holds public hearings to investigate state issues.[4] Selcat was formed when Pakatan Rakyat came to power after the 2008 election.[5]
