Article 55 (1) of the Selangor constitution appears to give the Menteri Besar – who heads the state exco – some room to maneuver as to whom he may appoint to provide counsel to the ruler.
It looks like Khalid even can set up a special advisory committee (“body of persons”) in the interim to act under his authority to presently advise the Sultan.
My thanks to a commenter @ 2014/08/11 at 5:09 pm for his leads on why Khalid Ibrahim’s position can be supported by the Selangor constitution.
Article 53(2)(b) of the Selangor constitution
Khalid’s state government needs only to have a minimum four excos.
As long as the PAS Aduns stay put, Khalid’s state government remains legit in law.
UPDATE (5.55pm): Khalid can keep his job according to Selangor constitution
Today’s headline news – Khalid says Sultan says he stays
“if any of his Pakatan Rakyat exco members cannot work with an Independent menteri besar, they may exit the government” – http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/271227

The idea of an Umno-PAS unity government is nothing new. It was seriously negotiated last time when Hassan Ali was the Selangor PAS commissioner. And in Perak too in 2008.
Below are seven signals why this time, the negotiation is far more serious and likely to succeed. (more…)

The American Declaration of Independence was proclaimed in 1776 by 13 colonies – Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Rhode Island, Virginia – to dissolve their political connection with the British Crown.
And thus the USA was born on the Fourth of July.
Yesterday there was the brouhaha of Negaraku, supposedly a “people’s movement” launched to reclaim the nation … FOR … Ambiga and her following … FROM … Isma and its cohort.
Reported in the Rakyat Times – a news portal linked to Haris Ibrahim – Negaraku is described as a movement “focused on the formation of Bangsa Malaysia – a move away from the current ethnocentric and race-based politics of of the day”.
Negaraku is a “people’s movement to reclaim our nation” that was launched yesterday.
The coalition of NGOs have named themselves after our national anthem. Even the name of our lagu kebangsaan also they want to grab and cause confusion to the public.
Since they call themselves the “people’s movement”, let’s see who these people are. (more…)
If you were the boss, you’d know what work requires to be done in your company. Someone has to do the job. As the boss, you hire personnel to fill vacancies, and their qualifications must match your organization’s needs.

The Malay Mail reported recently on July 27 an allegation made by businessman Vincent Ng that he had once helped the MCA leadership conjure up “tens of thousands of phantom members” for the party.
The newspaper article, headlined ‘Phantom members rolled out for MCA-rigged polls, says businessman‘, claimed that the validity of the party’s registry is in doubt should allegations about the existence of these members – purportedly enrolled without their knowledge – prove to be true.

Some of you claim that it’s hypocritical for the minority race parties to want to merge with Umno and make the BN ‘satu aliran’ (one stream) as long as the education system still remains segregated.

(1) Blame Umno
Admitting that the failure to elect Malay candidates is “a setback to the DAP cause to represent all Malaysians”, Lim Kit Siang gave the following excuse.
“It has always been an uphill task for the DAP to reach out to the Malays, with the Umno and its mainstream media carrying out a sustained campaign to poison the minds of the Malays and demonise the DAP as anti-Malay and anti-Islam.”
Source: LKS press statement (17 Dec 2012)
So you see, the Malays failed to do well in the DAP election because the party has been unable to reach out to the Malays to persuade them to become DAP members who can vote their own Malay delegates who get to vote for the 20-member CEC.
It is all Umno’s fault (more…)
