PETALING JAYA: Former Selangor menteri besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim has died in hospital at the age of 75.

His death, announced on his official Facebook page moments ago, came a little over a week after it was reported that he was seeking treatment at a local hospital as he was unwell.

He was reported to have been taken to hospital with a lung infection in May but his condition stabilised.

Khalid served as Selangor’s menteri besar from 2008 until September 2014, a month after he was sacked from PKR after repeatedly refusing to vacate the post.

He joined PKR in 2006 and became treasurer-general. In the 2008 general election, he was elected assemblyman for Ijok and MP for Bandar Tun Razak and became menteri besar when Pakatan Rakyat gained control of Selangor.

PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar said Khalid had been a great mentor and a good friend to the family. “You will always be remembered,” she wrote on Facebook.

Before entering politics, Khalid was a noted corporate figure and served as the chief executive of Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB).

He is best remembered for leading the “Dawn Raid” on the London Stock Exchange, which resulted in PNB gaining a 51% share in plantation group Guthrie in less than two hours.

The raid later led to changes to the rules of the London Stock Exchange.
