How to replace a Mentri Besar

WHILE the world is grappling with the aftermath of a series of commercial aircraft tragedies in the space of days, PKR is seemingly occupied with trying to replace Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim. It is a post that PKR, with the consent and support of its Pakatan Rakyat partners, had bestowed upon Khalid in the first place.

Selangorians may like to think that as the rakyat, they have a say on who becomes the chief executive of the state. In reality, in this country, such matters are left to the party or coalition we elect into government. The party or coalition picks the officers of the government, not the people. So whether Selangorians like it or not, if PKR in its wisdom decides that Khalid must go, there is nothing much that Selangorians can do about it.
