Click.delegate for multiple-select options in Internet Explorer

I have the following multi-select box:

<select value.bind="myitems" matcher="myitemsmatcher">
    <option repeat.for="item of anyitems" click.delegate="removeItem()" />

In Firefox, Chrome etc. this works well. But in Internet Explorer (11) the click.delegate of the option is not recognized.
Does anyone knows a clever trick how I can workaround that? :confused:

what happens if you try click.trigger? If it works then I guess option doesn’t bubble click event in IE11?

Here is some relevant bit I found related to click and <option/> in IE11:

Unfortunatly click.trigger also doesn’t work. I guess I need to find a way using changed.delegate. That seems to work.
