He’s at it again! This time the Raja Muda of Perak, Raja Dr Nazrin Shah says,

“The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. It guarantees the rights of every Malaysian. The integrity of that document must be protected at all cost.

The Constitution was a cleverly crafted document which clearly provided for adequate checks and balances against excesses through the separation of powers between the executive, the legislature and the judiciary, each protected from encroachment by the other, he said.

“It has often been said that many a misunderstanding may be avoided if principles embodied in the Constitution are adhered to strictly. Upholding the rule of law is paramount.” ( Story link )

Indeed, I have not heard consistent clear reasoning from any leaders for the longest time, on any topics. When was the last time you heard something that did not contain warnings, threats, name-callings, keluar dari negara ini, act of God, [you name it] ?

You can read the whole speech from this link. One good word of advise from his keynote address, “Let us not be naive in thinking it is all a rosy picture. There is still much room for improvement.”

Students boo over remarks that they can freely express views

KUALA LUMPUR: Boos and catcalls greeted Datuk Rafiah Salim when she said public university students had the freedom to express their thoughts and ideas.
Several hundred dissenting voices rang out when the Universiti Malaya vice-chancellor, when taking a question from the floor, said there was “no such thing as students being unable to address their concerns”.

Hearing their disapproval, Rafiah retorted: “Behaviour like this is exactly what causes people not to respect you. You won’t even give me a hearing. And you won’t get respect.

Heh, I would have loved to be there.
