Are you in support to dissolve the Selangor State Assembly?
Now that Anwar Ibrahim has announced that he will stand as a candidate in Kajang by-election (although he somewhat was reluctant to state that he wanted to be the MB of Selangor) I want to ask PKR and PR, have you all THOUGHT about the scenario I am about to write?
The Selangor State Constitution says (like any other State Constitution in Malaysia) as follows:
i) The Sultan may appoint an ADUN as the MB who in his judgment is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the assembly - Article 53 (2); and,
ii)if the MB ceases to command the confidence of the majority, unless the Sultan dissolves the assembly at his (the MB's) request, the MB must tender resignation of his exco - article 53(6). (meaning, the state government would resign paving the way for an election).
Hmmm....another Perak in the making? So, Khalid tenders his resignation.
The Sultan asks why would you want to resign since there is confidence in you? What would Khalid's answer be? Health reason? Because Anwar or Azmin want to be MB? The Sultan than would say "you think the MB-ship can be passed like some toy is it? The Sultan might just say "tell me frankly, actually they don't want you anymore, right? So, if they don't want you, that would mean you don't command the confidence of the majority anymore. If so, are you requesting me to dissolve the assembly? If not, please tender the resignation of your exco.
In the Perak case, the Federal Court has decided that the Sultan has the power to ask for the MB's resignation.
So, if the above happens, a whole new State election is in the pipe huh? Awesome isn't it? As if we the voters have nothing bloody better to do.
