The statement by the Agong calling for an early recall of the Assembly based, it must be assumed, on qualified advice received. Now Malaysians hear the Speaker of the Assembly reportedly contradicting the Agong by saying that September would not be too late for such a meeting “to address Malaysia’s multiple crises”
Unfortunately the Speaker, who is not, officially, a politician chose not only to contradict the Agong but also arrogated to himself a decision which he is not entitled to make. Perhaps, bored by long months of well paid idleness, he feels frustrated.
In any case his views about delaying a sitting of the Assembly are understandable. The second item of business after the vote of no confidence in Moo is very likely to be a similar one directed at the Speaker.
