Sultan should keep away from holding executive role

The sultans are above the politics, and if they are giving executive power to run the state assets, they will be freely criticized by the rakyat for the decision they make. This is bad for sultan and the rakyat too, who may be accused in insulting the sultan.

The sultan should keep the present status as a neutral and above politics monarchy. Their direct involvement in running business will jeopardize sultan’s constitutional status.

Returning to absolute monarchy or sultan involvement in running business for the state assets is against the Malaysia constitution.

Dr M: State, rulers cannot change Constitution without Parliament’s approval
