But wait…this is not Pakistan, nor Musharraf (pixs), but Terengganu and Idris Jusoh.
What happens when UMNO is “disloyal” to the Sultan of Terengganu, who is also the country’s present Monarch (as in Agung), over his choice of Menteri Besar? What happens when UMNO accuses the state ruler of ‘unconstitutional’ behaviour when his Majesty appointed someone not of UMNO’s choice to be ‘head of state’?
A state of emergency, I would say, as all hell seem to be breaking loose in the east coast state. UMNO cannot accept “NO” for an answer, you see. Not even from the Monarch, or the Sultan, himself. Which makes UMNO…?
A constitutional crisis is about to explode in that small eastern state. And who will be the first casualty? The people, of course. This is the only state without a Chief Minister at the moment. You can imagine how bewildered the people of Terengganu are at this sorry state of affairs.
(Hey, I remember seeing old Malay movies about traitors who went against the royal kingdom. Do you know what happenned to them? A very painful punishment, I would say – sodomised publicly with a young bamboo shoot – correct me if I am wrong).
Why is it that UMNO can go against the Terengganu royalty and no one make a big fuss about it? Why is it that no one calls PM Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and his deputy Najib Tun Razak ‘traitor’ or ‘biadap‘ (as in bad/ill mannered) when they refuse to accept the Sultan’s decision?
Remember what happenned when DAP Lim Kit Siang asked his party to boycott the appointed Perak menteri besar because he was from PAS?
In Terengganu, Kijal assemblyperson Ahmad Said has been appointed Menteri Besar but all those 22 UMNO goons (BN state representatives) have decided to boycott him coz he was not their choice as in “Idris Jusoh” (who according to Sheih @ Kickdefella, is a corrupted guy).
Worst still, UMNO had sacked Ahmad for ‘disobeying the party leadership’ (read Abdullah/Najib) and says his appointment by the Sultan is “unconstitutional”. This is despite the fact that Ahmad has got grass roots supporters, according to Malaysiakini.
Najib, however, rebuted this and said Idris has the support of 23 out of the 24 state assembly persons, therefore he should be the state chief, and this was constitutional as UMNO had the majority seats in the state (Bernama). Isn’t he accusing the Sultan of being ‘unconstitutional’?
So what now? Does UMNO own Terengganu or the Sultan? Heaven forbid, if it is UMNO, or are we already too late?
