The DUN assembly in Terengganu are on-going as usual. However, there's a catch. 10 BN state representatives did not come for the assembly. 3 of the 10 were threatened with death SMSes. So, what's the issue here? A vote of no-confidence for the current Terengganu MB, Ahmad Said. Seems that Idris Jusoh (former Terengganu MB) still has a big influence among the backbenchers.
Most of the BN state representatives had preferred Idris Jusoh to continue as MB. However, the Agong, also the Sultan of Terengganu, said otherwise. Thus, they protest in front of the palace. One of the banners was written as: KAMI NAK IDRIS, NATANG. So, who were they referring to as 'NATANG' (animal)? Most likely the Agong because the Sultan has the prerogative and power to elect a new MB of his choice. His choice is Ahmad Said but it was met with resistance by most of the BN state representatives who had demonstrated in front of the palace. DERHAKA issues anyone? LOL.
However, if they (BN representatives aligned with Idris Jusoh) manage to pass a vote of no confidence against Ahmad Said (mind you, the opposition did not raise the issue), then expect 2 scenarios:
a) Expect the Sultan of Terengganu (a.k.a Agong) to elect a new Terengganu MB
b) Expect a snap election in Terengganu
In good economical times, I would prefer the second choice. However, in times of economic crisis such as these, I would prefer the issue to die down. So, let's hope the Terengganu crisis does not spiral out of control until it affects the people of Terengganu badly. In fact, I prefer Ahmad Said to Idris Jusoh as Terengganu MB. But then again, I'm not a Terengganu citizen. I'm just a nosypoker from KL. But that's not the point. The point is, let Ahmad Said do his job until the next GE in 3 or 4 years time. Then, only will people give their virdict. That will be the fair outcome for this issue.
To the pro-Idris state representatives, GROW UP! We live in difficult economic times for crying out loud! If you guys can't even cooperate with Ahmad Said, how the hell are you guys going to cooperate with the people? Drop the plans for the vote of no-confidence, or face another state crisis like what is happening in Perak now.
