SEREMBAN– The Negeri Sembilan state government will merge Seremban Municipal Council (MPS) and Nilai Municipal Council (MPN) to become Seremban City Council (MBS).
The declaration will be made on April 21.
Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said Seremban would be elevated to city status in January next year, in conjunction with the 71st birthday of Yang di-Pertuan Besar Negeri Sembilan Tuanku Muhriz Tuanku Munawir.
“After the administrative declaration, we give them (MBS) eight months from April, to sort out the Backroom Operations, issues, staffing and so on.
“Eight months is good enough for them to coordinate and most importantly it is for them to amalgamate these two councils into one (entity),”
