cakap cakap....The Johor Royal Family

steadyaku47 comment : My posting yesterday "Does the Johor State Government belong to the Johor Royal Family? No lah!"  has had some interesting and informative response from our friends...some of which I have posted below for you all to and learn!

As for that massive/mega/colossal/gigantic/immense/humongous/whopping development the Sultan is now engaged in with parties from China (see below)...I only have this to say....the Johor Royal Family better pray that they can sell what they build....kalau tidak all the money they have will not be able to save the Johor Royal Family from financial ruin... mampus! And ponder this reality....Najib is already beholden to China for his political soon before the Johor Royal Family becomes beholden to China for it's financial survival? Say tanya aja.......

Sharifuddin Abdul Latiff There is a difference between the head of state and head of government.

In Malaysia, the former has a symbolic albeit ceremonial national status while the latter is an elected steward for nationhood, including holding in trust, all national assets as well as institutions on behalf of citizens.

The government, therefore, do not have its own money/assets, etc. So how can the TMJ claim otherwise?

When Johor agreed to be a part of the federation in 1957, the royal house have, in essence, abrogated its rights to rule/govern in deference to a parliamentary democracy.

However, it seems that Johor has a unique state constitution which apparently included a caveat for secession from the federation if certain terms were violated. Aku malas nak selidik lebih lanjut tentang 'special rights' ni. Sebab nya senang aje. TMJ nak revert ke feudalism atau pon pegang janji demokrasi untuk rakyat?

Bottom line - This is a turf war between the Johor royal elite and the political elite in Putrajaya, both wanting to secure the wealth which rightly belong to all Malaysians.

Therefore, Bangsa Johor is just a myth to fool Johorians.

Nuff said!

sepanjang pengetahuan saya pemerentahan beraja secara mutlak sufah tamat semenjak sebelum malaysn union. kembalinya raja berpelembagaan setelah rancangan malayan union tewas. jangan usik syatusquo ini. kalau tidak semua akan rugi baik raja mahu pun raayat. berhati-hatilah.
