When Will The Selangor MB Issue Be Resolved?

The rakyat, especially the Selangor folks I am sure, want a swift resolution to the MB issue.

But some parties, it seems, are hell bent on unnecessarily prolonging the impasse, starting with the potato Khalid himself and his inexplicable obstinacy.

Khalid could have gracefully resigned when told that he was not longer wanted by his party. Instead, he insisted on overstaying and dragging Selangor into disrepute and turning the situation into an untenable one.

Perhaps Khalid was embolden to defy his party by Pas' equally inexplicable stance. What was Hadi and his ulama council hoping to achieve by not staying with their coalition partners?

Hadi is said to have a thing about Anwar and perhaps an aversion to a woman being appointed a leader. But those are poor excuses for not being a team player. If you are in a coalition, you stand by your partners and not behave like an enemy.

If you can't agree, the honourable thing is to leave. You don't stay and insist on your own way that is inimical to the coalition.

The same went for Khalid. Instead of leaving, he waited to be sacked and yet insisted on staying on as MB when he clearly had lost the majority support of the Aduns.

Hadi should just take a cold shower to cool down his feverishness at the prospect of a woman MB.

To complicate matters, the palace has now asked for several names to be submitted for consideration. Isn't submitting several names implying that none has the majority support of the Aduns to be appointed MB?

If Khalid had in the first place gracefully stepped down and advised the palace of the real situation, the MB issue would have been resolved.

Now, one might even question whether in fact there is a legitimate government in place in the state.

As the law stands, when Khalid lost the majority support of the state assembly persons, he and his exco were deemed to have resigned. That being the case, with no new MB and exco installed, could the Khalid administration's life be extended by royal decree?

If not, that is a most unfortunate and untenable situation for the state. For whatever transactions, including appointments made, and contracts entered into by the Khalid administration would be considered void and unenforceable in law since there is no government in existence to speak of?

All because of the obstinacy of one man and perhaps the greed and perfidy of others?

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
