NH Chan turns his focus on the Selangor Government and slams its attempt to amend the Selangor Constitution. Reiterating sound legal advice given on the LoyarBurok blawg, he asks if there is something amiss in K-point.
A singalong on Malaysian politics.
An imperfect record of the Perak Crisis, but nevertheless necessary reading for all conscientious Malaysians keen on preserving liberty and democracy. A useful tool, perhaps, in proactively combating the looming constitutional crisis in Selangor, 2011?
This week, Ask Lord Bobo answers questions on the Selangor state secretary, the difference between being and living, and how Malaysians students who are overseas can vote in the General Elections.
The Perak case is significant to all Malaysians, as its implications are far-reaching not just for other state governments but also at the national level, especially as discussion is underway on the relationship between the civil service-royalty-political parties in the state of Selangor presently.
There does not appear to have been an appointment made by the Selangor State Service Commission in respect of the vacant SS post. The constitutional position requires the Commission to make the appointment. If not, a suit may be filed to compel the Commission to so act.
Sewaktu reviu ini ditulis, aku baru pulang dari perlawanan futsal antara LoyarBurok dan MyConsti. Sebagai seorang kaki bangku yang jujur, aku hanya hadir bagi menyatakan sokongan kepada teman-teman yang berhempas pulas mengejar bola nan sebijik, dan bersorak pada setiap kali bola warna oren itu melepasi gawang gol. Bila aku sebut gawang gol, maksud aku celah kaki Edmund Bon yang pakai seluar terbalik. Tapi itu cerita lain.
The book launches 1212 (that’s tomorrow) at 4pm. Meet the protagonists (politicians, contributors, writers and lawyers[LB]) at the LoyarBurokking session. Here, we prove ourselves right that there is indeed the Lord Bobo. Finally, after much persuasion, our editor-at-large (and an in-house banking legal counsel bigwig) gives us the lowdown on the book. And its her […]
The book launches 1212 at 4pm. Meet the protagonists (politicians, contributors, writers and lawyers[LB]) at the LoyarBurokking session. Here, read a review of the book to understand why you shouldn’t be missing the launch. The facts are well known. The spark was lit when four Pakatan Rakyat Perak State Assembly members defected from their coalition. […]
Loyarburok strongly believes that it is unhealthy to force lawyers to wait too long for the hearing or mentions simply because it may at some point force them to think, or worse think critically. Encik Fahri Azzat who was recently in the Penang High Court for a winding up hearing was afflicted with both these sorry diseases after approximately 2 1/2 hours of sitting down and listening to other cases being disposed of. You may read the thoughts the wait provoked here.
With reference to the 3 questions for the Federal Court on the MB v MB appeal mentioned here, my answers are as below:
Thank you for all your comments and feedback to my posts. I have been following the threads closely, and in response to the specific query by Loyar Bagus here, this is my response.
Introduction Last week, I wrote an online comment on the nature and ambit of the Sultan of Perak’s powers (see www.loyarburok.com here), basing my thoughts on the High Court decision in that case. Shortly afterwards, two of the three Court of Appeal judgments – those of Dato’ Raus Sharif and Dato’ Ahmad Maarop JJCA – […]

Professor Dr. Andrew Harding, after the demise of the late Professor RH Hickling CMG QC, would (with Professor Dr. HP Lee) arguably share the honour of being the foremost jurists on the Malaysian Constitution. Among others, he is the author of “Public Duties and Public Law” (OUP, 1989), “Law, Government and the Constitution in Malaysia” […]
Court Observer says: Having just digested the 78-page judgment of High Court judge Datuk Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahim on who is the rightful MB of Perak, I conclude it is a well-reasoned decision. The judge holds the view that only a vote of no confidence on the floor of the house (state legislative assembly or […]
