PAS leadership is happy with the appointment of Azmin Ali as the new Selangor menteri besar. The party said all quarter should respect the decision made by the Sultan and hoped Pakatan Rakyat and members of the public would not question Azmin’s appointment.
…Dr Oh Ei Sun, senior fellow at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University, said Azmin’s appointment as the new Selangor MB is not a bad thing altogether for Pakatan Rakyat, but his appointment also marks the start of the Westminster system embraced by the Malaysian government.
“Since the precedent has been set, we will only see what will happen to the country’s constitutional monarchy system. I have no idea which way will it be headed to.”
