Tun Mahathir's Mistake

By removing the King's hold over the government, it has become unaccountable

12 December 2023
he King and the Malay rulers were the check and balance instituted in the constitution to ensure the government is accountable. Without the check and balance, the government is no longer accountable. The government becomes a playground for politicians to personally enrich themselves.

Tun Mahathir's mistake was to remove the powers of the King and the Malay rulers. Today, their roles are largely ceremonial.

Returning the power of the King and Malay rulers is a step in stopping the deterioration of our country.
