The Selangor Sultan in the Eye of the Storm

The Sultan of Selangor

Methinks the Sultan of Selangor does too much.......



What is worrying is that our Prime Minister does not share OUR concern – the frisky ambassador, the corrupt politician and the likely rapist -should be held to the same standards that we would expect of any ordinary Malaysian.

It would seem that those in high public office are NOT subject to the same standards of propriety that we expect of ourselves and from our peers. That our Prime Minister is guilty of condoning these wrongs speaks volume of his sense of decency.

Selangor Sultan Beholden to UMNO-BN Govt

And now like Perak, they (UMNO-Bn Govt) are using a Sultan to do their dirty deeds for them.

Using the Sultan of Selangor to ‘legalize” the appointment of the State Secretary.

We all know that the Sultan of Selangor is beholden to the Barisan Nasional government for his daily bread. He has been making a good deal of money from his many business dealings where, for the most part, the BN government have chosen to quietly overlook indiscretions that he has committed.

And now they (UMNO-BN Govt) are calling in the markers they have been keeping on THIS Sultan of Selangor.

Selangor Sultan Has Unsavoury Personal Issues

If the Sultan does go in to bat for the Barisan Nasional over this appointment of the State Secretary, then I think he will be opening himself up to a number of issues.

His personal life for one.

Let me get more to the point – this Sultan, who is the head of Islam in his state - f**** around with girls in and around Kuala Lumpur.

You **** around with the appointment of the State Secretary, we f*** around with your f*** ing around.

We can start with that non-Malay girlfriend of yours that have served as your regular f*** for a good number of years.

You might think it all good fun and it really is until you realize that the Internet will tell what the newspaper will not!

So tread carefully and think what it is that you are doing.

Go on living your useless life paid for by the people’s money and LEAVE politics well alone.

Interfere with politics then you and your brother Sultans might see the end of your reign as the Maharajahs in India have seen the end of theirs sooner then you think

Lawyers said Selangor will face a serious constitutional crisis if the swearing-in of Datuk Mohd Khusrin Munawi as the new Selangor State Secretary takes place before Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah.

Lawyer Malik Imtiaz Sarwar agreed that swearing in Mohd Khusrin without consulting Khalid may trigger off a constitutional crisis in the state. He said, “The core issue surrounding the controversy was the Federal Go­­vernment’s failure to consult Khalid before deciding to make Mohd Khusrin the new state secretary."

However, a source close to the palace said the event may not take place due to current developments.

A top-ranking state government official also said that Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim was scheduled to have an audience with Sultan Sharafuddin on Monday and would make an announcement after the meeting.

Chief Secretary to the Govern­ment Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan had earlier announced that Mohd Khusrin’s appointment would take effect from today.

Khalid accused Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Sidek Hassan today of sabotaging the state with the appointment of new state secretary.

Khalid insisted that the appointment of Datuk Mohd Khusrin Munawi is unconstitutional and that Sidek should have consulted the state government.

In a statement, Khalid said,

“In naming Datuk Khusrin Munawi , the chief secretary had disregarded the selection process which is in line with the civil service practice notes as prepared by the state civil service commission which seeks advice from the public civil service at the federal level.

Needless to say, Tan Sri Mohd Sidek’s acts are unconstitutional, irresponsible and unprofessional which can be construed as a political act in an attempt to sabotage the credibility of the Pakatan Rakyat Government in Selangor.

Tan Sri Mohd Sidek has sent out an unhealthy message to civil servants that merits and ability are not priorities in promoting government servants who are already facing criticisms for being ineffective and incompetent .

When he announced Datuk Khusrin’s appointment, the Chief Secretary had not only bypassed the mentri besar but he had wilfully disregarded a process which had picked the best candidates based on their ability, calibre and experience.”

Khalid has also formed a committee headed by Selangor Assembly Speaker Datuk Teng Chang Khim which had shortlisted three names that were submitted to the palace.

Palace officials have however maintained the mentri besar was “late” in forwarding his choice of candidates with Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah’s aide Datuk Mohamad Munir Bani saying that Khalid had sent in three shortlisted candidates on December 7, but by then the Ruler had already agreed to the federal government’s pick.

It is the incumbent duty of the ruling party to run this country inaccordance with the Constitution and the Rule of Law. They must run this country in an orderly fashion. It is indeed very clear that when you appoint a State Secretary he is expected to work with the State Government and not the other way around. In this regard the federal Government must select an officewr who can work with the YAA MB.And hence it is important that that officer selected has the confidence of him. Any other ideas the Federal Government may have when appointing a State Secretary can only be regarded as mischievous.

I hope that our leaders are just not too busy to follow the developments in Africa. Surely they do want us to places in the same basket of these failed states.
