SULTAN’S CONSENT : FOR SITTING, CONSTITUTION AMENDMENT DEBATE ….. OR TO DECIDE IF POWER REVERTS BACK TO SULTAN & STATE?

 

 

God, how pedantic can they be …… about whether the Sultan is consenting to this or that!

However, the underlying implications is quite great not only for Selangor …… but also for the other states in the country.

 

 

UMNO is on the back-foot since declaring that they would not be attending the State Assembly sitting ……. to debate and vote on amendments to the State Constitution proposed by the Pakatan Rakyat government ….. which would return the power to appoint senior state officials to the Sultan and the State.

Now that the Sultan of Selangor has consented to the State Assembly sitting slated for the 24 January 2011, UMNO has had to make a U-turn and decide to attend the event ….. for fear of being perceived to be disrespectful to the Sultan.

That decision is double-edged in that attending without voting is not an option for the UMNO led Barisan Nasional in the Selangor State Assembly.

In fact, they are in a precarious position …. something like Hobson’s Choice …. when it comes to voting on the amendments to the State Constitution to give back power to the Sultan to appoint senior state officials.

To vote against such an amendment would be a MAJOR SLIGHT against the Sultan of Selangor. click HERE

And as we all know, ‘face’ or the dignity of the Sultan is paramount!

Do and you’re SCrw’d …. don’t and you’re also SCrw’d.

This is surely going to be interesting!
