People should read the Constitution. It is not too late to make it a school subject.

Meanwhile, senior constitutional lawyer and former UN special rapporteur on the independence of judges and lawyers Param Cumaraswamy said that the Selangor sultan has no constitutional power to call for the deputy mentri besar to be a Malay.

“With respect, his highness should not be seen reading into the Constitution what is not there,” he said in a statement today.

He added that while the Selangor state constitution provided for the appointment of deputy mentri besar by the sultan, yet such appointment was actually to be made on the advice of the mentri besar from among the members of the state executive council.

He said that after appointing the mentri besar, the sultan would then appoint not more than 10 from the state assembly, on the advice of the menteri besar, to the state executive council.
