Self-dissolution of the Negeri Sembilan State Legislative Assembly – by Art Harun

Many on fb and Twiter are labelling the self-dissolution of the Negeri Sembilan State Legislative Assembly as "shameful", "lame" or whatever.

I fail to understand this.

The State Constitution (as do the Federal Constitution in respect of the Parliament) provides that the SLA shall "stand dissolved" 5 years after its creation. 

What has happened to the Negeri Sembilan SLA is an operation of law as provided by its Constitution. 

Many among us talk about upholding the law, especially the Constitution. Well, this IS what is provided by the law.

So why are we now saying it is shameful etc etc?

Under the Westminster styled democracy and State administration, it is the PREROGATIVE of the incumbent government to decide on the disolution. 

Do we uphold the law and Constitution when it suits us?

Note by Anas – Classic case of #BodohPolitik. Thank you Brother Art for a short but succinct article.
