A survey conducted by Malaysiakini saw an overwhelming majority of readers disagreeing with Sultan Azlan Shah's decision in the transfer of power in the silver state. Let me tell you the true story, actually there were very high expectations that the Sultan would uphold a decision for democracy and morality, rather than pure legality, so the people feel cheated by the sultan’s decision when Tuanku refused to dissolve Perak state assembly.
Thousand of them protested against the new government by Sultan. Protests and huge outcry over what many have called an undemocratic ousting of a legitimate state government, it would be safe to assume that a majority of Malaysians are unhappy over what has been going on in Perak. I have written about this before in my blog, read Malaysia’s Hollow Democracy.
