malaysiakini reported PM AAB stating that his government had played no role or brought any influence on the decision of the Federal Court in its 2-1 ruling on the Lina Joy case.
He also assured a foreign reporter that that the Federal Constitution continues to be supreme, dismissing the querier’s suggestion that Islamic law was now above the secular constitution of the country.
AAB said: "There is no such thing (of Islamic law being above the Federal Constitution). The Federal Constitution is the Federal Constitution.”
“There is a set of laws we have to follow. It is something that we have to follow, that's all."
He’s right of course, without mentioning out aloud Article 121(1)(A).
Hmmm, I wonder what the world’s greatest political reformer has to say. Perhaps he has assumed the role of Mr Elegant Silence?
