Sultan can only appoint new MB if Mukhriz Mahathir resigns

Listen before bed to calm the emotions . . .

The sultan’s role on the appointment of the head of gov’t is confined to the formation of the gov’t after the GE.

Once the gov’t has been formed, the sultan should continue to remain above the fray.

Otherwise, there will be endless changes of gov’t and no political stability.

No court will go against the sultan if he points the frogs in the direction of the state assembly.

Don’t allow frogs to dictate the formation of gov’t.

Heads of state risk being party to illegalities — public perceptions decide — and coming into odium, public ridicule, contempt and public disrepute if it’s perceived they didn’t remain above the fray.

There must not be even the slightest hint of public suspicion. In short, leave it to the legislature.

If the Kedah sultan appoints a new MB although the incumbent has not resigned, it will be Perak 2009 and Sabah 2018 all over again. The Perak case law, which may come into play, should be set aside by the Federal Court. It’s bad law, does not exist, has never existed.

Heads of state can appoint heads of gov’t but cannot sack them. Heads of state can sack Cabinet and Exco members, except the head of gov’t, but can only act on sackings upon the advice of the head of gov’t i.e. whether PM, CM or MB.

When election results are 50:50, the Frogs will try to dictate the formation of gov’t unless heads of state remain above the fray.

There can not only be frogging but reverse frogging.

Look at India. The President and Governors remain above the fray. They don’t entertain SDs. SDs are no proof of anything. It’s an individual voice on a matter which is collective and in the right forum: the legislature.

India has an anti-hop law but not like the one in Sabah which violated the Federal Constitution.

There are defections and pullouts in India.

Nothing happens when no confidence Motion is introduced. It’s tucked at the bottom, as gov’t business must be done first.

The no confidence Motions never see the light of day.

If gov’t Bills are defeated, they can be re-tabled and/or withdrawn.

The Budget, if defeated, can be re-tabled. It’s unlikely the Budget would be defeated a second time.

The Opposition can only chew on their youknowwhat and wait for the GE.

The sultan cannot appoint a new MB unless Mukhriz resigns.

The sultan is unlikely to appoint someone from PAS to be MB.

The sultan, being head of Islam, would not want PAS to usurp his role.

The potential frogs are allegedly only interested in filling their pockets. It’s a lifestyle decision under the guise of “perjuangan yang belum selesai” demi bangsa, agama, negara, derma a la ketuanan bla bla bla.

The backdoor Muhyiddin Yassin and Azmi Ali gov’t allegedly want to seize Sabah by hook or by crook before the July parliamentary sitting.

Sabah and Labuan have 26 MP seats.

If Bersatu video true, Muhyiddin Yassin misled Agong into appointing him as PM.
