Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the role of appointing the new Johor Mentri Besar lies with the party that won the election, not with the Sultan of Johor.

He also did not confirm if Johor exco member Dr Sahruddin Jamal from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia was one of the candidates in the running for the post, when met by reporters after opening the 15th Kuala Lumpur Islamic Finance Forum on Wednesday.
