EXTRACT FROM FORMER JUSTICE NH CHAN'S VIEWS IN MALAYSIA TODAY:
"...But, it is necessary to point out that in the Perak case of Nizar v Zambry, the Sultan has no power to appoint Zambry as the Menteri Besar because Nizar was still the holder of the office. It is only when the office is vacant would the Sultan be able to appoint another person to the office of Menteri Besar.
The unconstitutional appointment of Zambry to the post makes him an imposter. This is a blatantly unconstitutional exercise of a non-existent executive power by a pretentious constitutional monarch. Are we back to the days of the pretensions of King Charles I?..."
Notice how he said "...a pretentious monarch...", referring to Sultan Azlan, and equating his highness to England's King Charles.
Now, this blogger would like to ask him if he were so competent in his interpretation of the law, why does he not claim that HIS is the ONLY interpretation?
We wonder why then in certain cases the court appoints more than one judge?
