KUALA LUMPUR, May 14 (Reuters) - The chairman of Malaysia’s state palm oil plantation agency Federal Land Development Authority (Felda) has resigned, an agency spokesman said on Monday, confirming earlier information from three Felda-related sources.
The move follows shock election results which saw the defeat of a coalition which ruled the country for six decades.
Shahrir Samad, a former federal minister, was appointed as chairman in January 2017.
The Felda spokesman said an official statement will be released by the end of Monday. (Reporting by Emily Chow; Editing by Kim Coghill)
