In Ipoh, Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir was sworn in as the 12th Menteri Besar at the Istana Iskandariah in Kuala Kangsar this morning.
The Pangkor state assemblyman took the oath of office before the Regent of Perak Raja Dr Nazrin Shah.
The ceremony was attended by all newly BN elected representatives.
The state Pakatan Rakyat representatives boycotted the ceremony citing the just concluded general election was marred by fraud.
In his royal address earlier, Raja Dr Nazrin said it was time for all the people regardless of their political affiliation to move forward and to forgive and forget the misunderstandings that occurred during the campaigning period.
He added that leaders of both political divide should now make efforts to unify the people and perform their responsibilities with integrity.
