Daulat Tuanku, Daulat Tuanku, Daulat Tuanku.
After watching the announcement by the Palace, to me, this is the most promising news for all Malaysians.
As I mentioned in my previous article before 509,
The Rukun Negara is the best Vitamin for Malaysia & The Constitution is our best medicine to cure the illness & sickness of Malaysia.
Tahniah Yang di-Pertuan Agung who have now brought the spirit of the Article 43(2)(a) which states that the Agong shall appoint a member of the Dewan Rakyat as the prime minister who "in his judgment is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the House members".
The Federal Constitution is the supreme law of this Country and the power is granted to The King.
All Malaysians must notice what The King is doing which is for the betterment of Malaysia. From now on, I hope all Malaysians will pay attention to the Federal Constitution drafted with the wisdom of our founding fathers Tunku Abdul Rahman and his Rakan-Rakan of Indian and Chinese leaders which is the main foundation of peace and stability of the country.
We must understand that Malaysia is a Constitutional Monarch Democracy system where the Monarch is the most stable force of keeping unity in the country.
Yang di-Pertuan Agung has reminded us the importance of the Federal Constitution and that we must all be aware of the fundamental foundation of the country.
The Western style of totally free democracy is showing its weakness especially in developing countries. Party Politics or Pakat Politics is like a corrupted tender system that they all "pre-pakat" before the elections. This "pre-pakat" system does not count and does not care between right of wrong, good or bad, smart or stupid, the hers mentality, the party interests and the individual interests always surpasses the Country's interest because in the same party, they enjoy the benefit because of the association to the party which than lets them enjoy power and abuse power. Power is not supposed to be enjoyed, it is supposed to be for serving the people and definitely not for arrogance.
We must realise both the ruling party and opposition parties consists of good and bad people. Not all good and not all bad but some times or most of the times, good people because of politics and money, they bury their soul and their heart.
This is the problem of Malaysian Party Politics.
With the interview of every MP by the King himself, it is a chance to strengthen our Constitutional Monarch Democracy system, a medicine feeding time for every MPs especially during this Covid-19. It is a critical time.
Let's all give our Yang di-Pertuan Agung the support for the MPs interview session and trust his judgement of the quality of each MPs. All of them will have to act individually with their conscience and most importantly we hope that some of the MPs, The King would ask them if they remember the oath they make when people elect them as a law maker which is:
I...... have been elected (or appointed) as a member of the House of Representatives (or the Senate) do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully discharge my duties as such to the best of my ability, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to Malaysia, and will preserve, protect and defend its Constitution.
"Allegiance to Malaysia" means to the individual MPs. Sad to say most of these MPs they're allegiance are to the Political Parties instead of The Country. They forgot the oath! Making an oath is a serious commitment, but instead of allegiance to Malaysia, many MPs pledged their allegiance to the Political Parties. Instead the country own them, they forgot and they think they own the country.
In the past, this is what UMNO did. They have siphoned all the Country's interest to the party under the name of Politics then to themselves, to their families and relatives. That's why 509 the people had exercise the power of the people to change them.
My believe with this new development and new move of our beloved King, this act of protecting the power of the people, Individual quality politics vs Grouping party politics should be given serious consideration and should be looked at objectively and positively that Malaysia, after this episode will be on the brighter side as we have a King carrying out his duties for the people according to the Federal Constitution.
Also do give the benefit of doubt for the real reason of Tun Mahathir's Resignation. People should refer to YB Lim Guan Eng and YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's and Kadir Jasin's statement. Pay attention to his age and the hard working attitude before commenting.
But to me, this is an Act of God. Tuhan still kurniakan Malaysia to give us a King who has the real heart for the Rakyat. Let us really follow strictly the spirit of our Constitutional Monarch Democracy and let us all support the Urusan Seri Paduka Baginda.
The country does not belong to any political party or individual, but the country belongs to Malaysians in which our Yang di-Pertuan Agung is our symbol of sovereignty and the true guardian of the Malaysian people. Let's hope all MPs to memorise the Oath in their heart. God save 🇲🇾
Daulat Tuanku, Daulat Tuanku, Daulat Tuanku
