Yesterday I received an interesting SMS from MalaysiaKini. I wanted to post it but I just didn’t get around doing it. It reads;
31/3: Cabinet ministers have received invitations to attend the swearing-in ceremony of new PM Najib Razak in Istana Negara on Friday./MKINI
Yesterday was Tuesday. The swearing-in is to be on Friday. Pak Lah hasn’t yet vacated his position. If that isn’t over-confidence then I don’t know what is!
When I reflect upon the events that has led to the inevitable resignation of Pak Lah as PM, I find that this man is a man of principles. Sure he flipped-flopped most of the important decisions (okay,okay… ALL of them!)but in the end he stood firm on his decision to resign. He could’ve easily opted to continue on his tenure but he didn’t.
It’s just sad that he didn’t leave behind any worthwhile legacy unless of course if you’d consider Kh… you know what I mean! 😀
The point of this post is to question the early invitations to Friday’s swearing in before the king has made his announcement. Now the King has authority to say yes or no to an appointment of a Prime Minister. Of course this would also be based upon the unanimous support from the Dewan Rakyat before the Agong can appoint the PM.
Lim Kit Siang had this to say;
What happens if the Yang di Pertuan Agong does not consent to Abdullah’s desire to resign or needs time to discharge his royal prerogative?
