KUALA LUMPUR - Selangor voters may have to face the ballot boxes again soon if the apparent deadlock in Pakatan Rakyat (PR) over Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim’s position as mentri besar drags on, lawyers said.
The legal experts said should the embattled second-term mentri besar
continue to resist his party’s attempted ouster, the only way for PKR to
remove him from the coveted post is by pushing a no-confidence motion
in the state assembly.
“If the motion is passed, Khalid will have to tender his resignation
together with the resignation letters from his team of executive
councillors,” Syahredzan Johan explained.
But, the lawyer stressed, the mentri besar could again choose to
resist the move by advising the Selangor Sultan to accede to statewide
Syahredzan noted, however, that pushing for a no-confidence vote
against Khalid could be a risky outcome for Pakatan Rakyat (PR) and,
more specifically, for PKR as the party does not command the majority in
the 56-seat Selangor assembly.
Collectively, PR’s three member parties control the majority of the
House with 44 seats ― 15 each for DAP and PAS, and 14 for PKR.
Unfortunately for PKR, however, its attempted ouster of Khalid has
not received the blessings of all its allies in the pact. For example, a
faction in PAS, led by none other than the Islamist party’s president
Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang and several other powerful leaders, has
shown strong backing for Khalid.
“There is no certainty that if they push for the vote, all from DAP or PAS would back them,” Syahredzan pointed out.
Should the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition, which has a total of 12
seats in the House, choose to back Khalid in the vote by siding with
PAS, a hung assembly could trigger in statewide polls for the country’s
BN’s main party Umno, which won all 12 of the state seats, has
already indicated plans to milk the ongoing leadership crisis to its
benefit, and is even eyeing the possibility of wresting Selangor back
from PR should snap polls be called.
“We are ready, we have been preparing for this...this problem (MB
crisis) has gone on for far too long and affected the state,” Selangor
opposition leader Datuk Shamsudin Lias told the Malay Mail Online.
The Umno leader said his party will decide whether to back Khalid in a
no-confidence motion after observing whether PAS splits from its PR
partners in the vote.
“When the time comes, we will decide where to place our vote or support,” he said.
DAP and PKR leaders are reportedly in agreement to remove Khalid, but
last Friday, Hadi questioned the move, insisting that there were no
tangible reasons to replace the embattled mentri besar.
The PAS president has since earned the support of the party’s
powerful ulama council, including the wing’s acting chief Datuk Ahmad
Yakob and PAS spiritual adviser Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat.
Datuk Dr Shad Saleem Faruqi, emeritus professor of law at Universiti
Teknologi MARA (UiTM), said even if Khalid’s party colleagues move the
no-confidence vote against him in the assembly, the mentri besar could
still curry support from BN-Umno lawmakers.
“Support may come from the unlikeliest people… BN might try to back
him now that PR is looking to get rid of him,” said Shad Saleem.
The buck, however, ultimately stops with the state ruler.
