In an article written by lawyer Mohamed Hanipa Maidin, published by The Malaysian Insider, he wrote that the Sultan of Selangor has no choice but to approve PKR’s leader, Dr Wan Azizah as the MB of Selangor just because she has a 2/3 of the DUN in Selangor.
Doesn’t Hanipah Maidin understand the Selangor Constitution? In Article 55(2) of the Selangor Constitution, it is written that:
That means, the Sultan of Selangor has the freedom to choose whether he will or will not approve Dr Wan Azizah as the MB of Selangor. As of right now, despite losing the majority support from the DUN of Selangor, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Khalid Ibrahim is still legally the MB of Selangor because the Sultan of Selangor instructed him to remain as the MB, until His Highness returns to Malaysia.
Therefore, Dr Wan Azizah has no rights to elect herself as the Selangor MB even if Anwar Ibrahim, PKR, DAP and PAS voted for her to become the new MB because the rights to choose the MB belongs to the Sultan of Selangor.
In another article published by the The Malaysian Insider, TMI forced the MB of Selangor, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Khalid Ibrahim to quit his position as the MB and to ignore the Sultan of Selangor’s orders:
Who do they think they are to force Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Khalid Ibrahim to listen to their orders and ignore, disobey and disrespect the Sultan? Do they believe that they are more powerful than the Sultan? During all the years when BN ruled Selangor, Selangor had never been in a such mess because BN had never tried to overrule the Sultan’s words as what is happening now.
This is what happens when the parties in power are too power crazy. They have nothing else in their minds but to overrule each other and to satisfy their greed for money and power.
