About Selangor State Government crisis and democracy

I sensed something went amiss and I blogged about the Selangor State Government more than 3 months ago. Click here to read the previous posting.

Flip-flopping, inconsistency, disrespecting sanctity of contract, politicking, failure to protect the interest of the people do not make Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim a good Menteri Besar, despite being well-known as a outstanding corporate figure previously.

Recall the power grab in Perak in 2009, if there is no flaw in our democracy system, how could the decision of just a few people override the voters' choice in 2008 general election. I thought the power grab would have some impact on Perakians' votes in 2013 general election, but it was not significant enough. It is hard to tell what will turn out in the Pakatan's crisis in Selangor state but democracy has to be respected.

I do not believe in being a die-hard supporter of a political party. I think a mature voter supports the right policies mooted by any political parties. Not all politicians put the interest of the people first.

Question if the power grab in Perak was right?
Question if there is any valid reason to sack the state exco in Selangor?
Question the reason why Consortium Zenith-BUCG was awarded the Penang Undersea Tunnel project when Zenith Construction Sdn Bhd, a member of the consortium lack of convincing record to undertake project of this scale and complexity.
Question whether the proposed reclamation at Middle Bank in Penang is destructive to the environment?
