Boleh ke cabar Perisytiharan Darurat?

oleh Leslley Kalom

Bukan saya cakap, tapi Yb Prof Abdul Aziz Bari yang juga ADUN Tebing Tinggi (DAP)

Kenyataan ini dibuat pada bulan Oktober yang lepas apabila SPBYDPA tidak memperkenankan cadangan PM untuk mengistiharkan darurat.

Beliau juga pernah menyandang jawatan Exco Negeri Perak (2018 – 2020) dan memegang Exco Pendidikan, Sains, Teknologi dan Alam Sekitar

Sebelum masuk Politik, beliau adalah seorang pakar undang- undang khususnya dalam bidang Perlembagaan. Beliau juga merupakan tokoh akademik dan mantan Profesor Fakulti Undang-Undang di Universiti Islam Antarabangsa (UIA).

Jawatan Terkini : Ketua Pembangkang di DUN Perak

“Under Article 150 of the Federal Constitution, it is the power of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. If the Agong decides to say no (to a call for an emergency to be declared) then no one can challenge that.

“It happened before in 1966 where the former Sarawak Chief Minister Stephen Kalong Ningkan had challenged the Agong’s decision to call for emergency in the state, saying that the proclamation was in fraudem legis (claiming it was made for the purpose of removing him from his lawful position as the Sarawak chief minister).

“It was rejected by the court which said that the satisfaction of the Agong is the sole criteria. This means that the prime minister only acts as an adviser. So the Agong has the right to say yes or no,”
