malaysiakini and SUPPORT for ROYALTY

It is unfortunate that the decision of the Perak sultan has resulted in a "hung" government in that the people's wishes do not coincide with the wish of the sultan for the BN government to rule the state.
In a constitutional monarchical system like Malaysia, each party is required to act according to approved and accepted procedures or otherwise the system breaks down and we have the situation like the one in Perak.
Perhaps it is good that we learn from this lesson now or we could have a similar and more serious situation if it happens at the federal level.
This assurance by PAKATAN as reported in this malaysiakini article 'Pakatan not disrespecting Rulers' gives an assurance that the royal families still have a role to play in our system.
