Yes the incumbent Shahidan was very comfortable he would be re-assigned. I thought he has got the approval of Badawi. What a shock, a new Mentri Besar.

Raja Perlis Appoints Md Isa Sabu As Menteri Besar

The Raja of Perlis Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Putra Jamalullail has given his consent for the appointment of Bintong state assemblyman Datuk Dr Md Isa Sabu as the new Menteri Besar of Perlis in place of Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim.
The Raja of Perlis’ private secretary, in a statement distributed to reporters gathered in front of Istana Siraj here today, said the appointment was made under Article 39 (2) of the Laws of the Constitution of Perlis.
Under this provision, the ruler shall appoint a person who he thinks has the confidence of the majority of the members of the state assembly to become the menteri besar to head the state government.
“Based on this provision and after being satisfied with his ability to garner the support of the majority of the state assemblymen, His Royal Highness has consented to appoint Datuk Dr Md Isa Sabu as the Menteri Besar of Perlis effective March 14 2008,” he said.

  1. Shahidan is the last UMNO man standing in Perlis. The only buffer against PAS/BA. As long as he’s there PAS/BA will never capture Perlis,

    I felt compelled to write to you because the people who supported him mostly are voiceless people, simple folks who do not have internet access or speak English.

    I am sure that you’re not interested to read about Shahidan but now that all three of them are nothing, please compare the houses of Shahidan and Radzi and also how many supporters flock to their houses now that they have nothing. Ordinary folks are taking risks to show their support even though he has nothing more to give.

  2. Dear wan muzafar,

    I did not know he had that support. But I suppose the rumors brought him down. Am I correct.

  3. Not the rumours. Radzi. He had a ranch in Perlis, speaks English at home. He has a kampung house in his compound as if it is a relic of the past.

    To these kind of people the rakyat is stupid, ignorant or plain lazy.The always knew better.

    But Shahidan is still the kampung boy who speaks the language of the the masses.

    The govt in Perlis is a legal govt but please don’t insult us by calling it a BN govt.

  4. Dear wan muzafar,

    Perhaps your information is correct. I depend on what I read. If I may ask what caused the downfall of Shahidan?

  5. Just look at the picture of the new exco line-up. After the MB , who’s the secon man?
