And The MPSP President is ........

The [MCA]Star reported :: For about a month, the Seberang Prai Municipal Council (MPSP) functioned without a president. Then there were two. President No 1, Md Aris Ariffin took his oath as MPSP President at 10.00am; President No 2, Datuk Abdul Ghani Ariffin received the transfer order from the Public Services Department (PSD) at 3.00pm.
According to the [MCA]Star 'spin' report ::
Penang Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said there was no double appointment of president for the council.
Describing this as a case of misunderstanding, he said Md Aris was only an acting president to ensure there was no long gap or discontinuity in the council's leadership.

A blogger called this happening :: Cabinet's 2nd fart goes to Koh Tsu Koon and goes on to say :: However, Penang chief minister Dr Koh Tsu Koon put a big boot in his mouth when he insisted the appointment of a council president was "usually the prerogative of the State Exco".

The [UMNO]NST has this to say :: "Ghani is council president". Excerpts from this report ::
The Federal Government has over-turned the Penang Government’s choice for the Seberang Prai Municipal Council president, stating that Datuk Abdul Ghani Ariffin will assume that post on Friday. This ends the two-day con- fusion over who heads the council.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said today that Ghani, the Seberang Prai Utara district officer, replaces Ismail Mamat who retired on March 16.
Najib said: "Datuk Ghani is the president. Md Aris was only covering the duties of the president and as he might be required to use powers of the office, he was required to take the oath (of office). It's purely technical.
"So there is no question of two council presidents. This is what the Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Samsuddin Osman briefed the Cabinet (today)," he said at the DSA exhibition.

So who is really responsible for appointment of the MPSP President and who is the MPSP President gonna be? The Sun may have the answer :: It's my prerogative: Koh on appointment of council head.
Excerpts from the report on sun2surf ::
1. Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said on Thursday that there is no such thing as the federal government overturning the decision of the state in relation to the appointment of the Seberang Prai Municipal Council (MPSP) president.
2. Koh said that Abdul Ghani will not be sworn-in on Friday as reported by certain quarters.
"We have not decided on who is to be the next president ... but he (Abdul Ghani) is definitely not going to be sworn in on Friday and the PSD (Public Services Department) has confirmed this.
3. Meanwhile, Najib, when asked by reporters, conceded that it was a decision for the state government to make.

One point for Koh Tsu Koon, zero for Najib, zero for the spin doctors. And the MPSP President is ........
