Stripping the King's authority...

After lying about Scorpene submarines, the water shortage in Klang Valley and dodging the rakyat with their counter-Badget 2013, Pakatan Rakyat is making a new attempt which is beyond imagination - to strip the Yang di-Pertuan Agong of his legitimate authority over the Election Commission.

They want the EC to be answerable only to the Parliament, and to them. They refuse to recognise the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) on electoral reform where they are represented.

Still accusing the law and the system introduced under Barisan Nasional as corrupt and bias, they mock the PSC and the EC as being the tools to deny them a win in the next general election, that the PSC is incompetent and will fail in ensuring PRU13 will be clean and free from vote-rigging.

They have forgotten how they won 5 states during the last national poll, a proof that the EC is a totally independent body and only answers to King.

And now they are questioning whether the EC can be put directly under the Parliament, instead of it being the prerogative power of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

His subject can still remember when Pakatan Rakyat tried to amend the Constitution in such a way that the country would end up as a republic, thus stripping the palace of its status!

Looks like they will never stop. They had even tried to get the King's commitment for Bersih 2.0 last year to the disgust of the rakyat, especially the Malays. They treated the King like a president of a republic!

But that's the whole idea. They see the constitutional monarchy as a barrier to their political desire. Stripping him of any power to the administration would augur well in attaining their objective - to rule the country without any interruption from the palace!
There are no plans to make the Election Commission (EC) answerable to Parliament, as it is an institution under the authority of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz said under Article 114 of the Federal Constitution, the EC is an independent body appointed by and answers to the King.
"In principle, the EC is an institution under the authority of the King ... the Prime Minister's Department only oversees its daily administration and management.
"Therefore, there is no need to make the commission directly answerable to Parliament," said Nazri in reply to Chow Kon Yeow (DAP-Tanjong).
Chow had asked if the government plans to implement a suggestion by the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) on electoral reform, to make the EC answerable to Parliament.
Nazri, however, said the EC will look into the suggestion for future implementation if the need arises.
One may suggest that if PR wins the next general election, they will want absolute control on everything, including the King. Its true!

why must they strip agong's power on the election commission?

that's already 'kurang ajar'.

why not all the opposition MPs strip naked at the parliament instead!

cant agree more.

pakatan has a hidden agenda to turn malaysia into a republic like singapore, indonesia and the philippines.

with the close ties between dap and pap, they see how singapore has progressed over the years, claiming it to be better than malaysia.

they have the plan, actually.

anwar knows it better!

long live DAP said...

stop spewing lies la!

If they got their way, these idiots could end up having an Election Commission under a parliament with a Barisan Nasional government in power.

I'm sure it will be "very fair" then and they will have no recourse to an independent higher authority.

salam tuan,

kalau diberikan kuasa membentuk kerajaan, pakatan rakyat nampaknya akan meletakkan semua perundangan di hujung tangan mereka.

jika terjadi sedemikian, maka akan bertukarlah malaysia kepada sebuah negara diktatorial.

terserahlah kepada rakyat untuk menilainya

to me, having links with singapore is still ok.

but the idea of establishing diplomatic ties with israel makes me really worried.

imagine having bank of israel in malaysia, engaging israeli officer to train our soldiers and policemen and adopting to their politics.

we should run down anwar's plan!

orang melayu akan menentang apa saja usaha, tidak kira pihak mana sekalipun, untuk melucutkan kuasa raja-raja di bidang tertentu.

janganlah pembangkang, khasnya dap cuba bermain dengan api.

melayu sudah lama sabar dengan mereka ni!

kalau letak SPR bawah PR, maknanya takkan ada pilihanraya langsung selepas mereka berkuasa.

mereka akan pinda perlembagaan agar pru hanya diadkan jika rakyat memberontak, rampasan kuasa atau 50 tahun sekali.

lojik tak, bujai?

dap is getting more kurang ajar of late!

what's wrong having the ec to be answerable to the parliament. just seek the king's consent without having to strip his power. we still respect the king. the only thing is, we need to seek justice to every system

PR lies in everything, bro.

they can even lie about scorpene and their engagement with bersih and bar council, remember?

so, they will continue with their lies.

however, to strip the king's power, they will have to face the rakyat first!

kepala hotak dia berjambul said...

PR - Penipu Rakyat.

dia ingat dia makin dapat banyak sokongan.

mula2 dulu ok la, rakyat masih keliru.

kelentong la lagi, nuar oiii!!!!

In a nutshell the pakatan clowns wants to turn Malaysia into the hinterland of greater singapork.

After all singapork is the unofficial sheriff in south east asia

jangan melampau dalam membuat tuntutan, buruk padahnya nanti.

kalau hak dan kuasa raja pun nak dilucutkan, memang nak nahas la!
