PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan has been very naughty in questioning Anwar Ibrahim's suitability to be PM, since he (DSAI) is a former convict. Takyuddin has been bestowed the kaytee-royal title of Top Char-Koay-Teow-er, wakakaka.

As I posted on Saturday in STFU Takiyuddin Hassan my reasoning as to why Anwar even as an ex convict is OK to be PM, we also need to remember DSAI has already received a royal pardon from HM the Agong. And I'm not going to follow Lim GE's style of intimidation by (mis)using HM's name in the ensuing argument, wakakaka.
Takyi, lu kuai-laan, wa tau hor Agong thnea
Perak DAP vice-chairman Abdul Aziz Bari informed us that royal pardons are in themselves protections against failures or abuses in the justice system. They exists as safeguards against mistakes in the legal system, such as frame-ups on a black eye-d Anwar, where during the Sodomy I court case, even a mattress was hauled into court, wakakaka.
Dr Bari who is a constitutional law expert, said “It is a tacit admission that no system is perfect and that it’s not necessarily foolproof”.
Dr Bari lamented that Takiyuddin as a lawyer was embarrassingly ignorant about the functions and effects of the royal pardon.
Then in what is seen to be a continuous attack on Anwar's suitability to be PM, the issue swung from 'ex-convict' to his pardon by the Agong. It was deduced that the Pardons Board advising the Agong was not fully constituted because AG Gani Patail was absent (already sacked in 2015).
The three key persons in the Board are the Agong, PM and AG. The argument is that although the Agong and Mahathir would have given their consents (with one most reluctantly, wakakaka), the ex AG, Gani Patail, was already absent during the pardoning, and Tommy Thomas was yet to be appointed, and thus Anwar's pardon was asserted as being illegal.
Even if that was the case, easy peasy, just re-do the pardon again to make it legal, with Tommy Thomas chained to his chair to ensure he doesn't ponteng, wakakaka.
But in truth, it was legal because the law says that in the absence of the AG, the Solicitor-General can/could act in his place. Voila. no worries Anwar, wakakaka.
The final argument is that, precisely of what I had written in STFU Takiyuddin Hassan, it really doesn't matter whether the royal pardon had erased Anwar's convictions or not, as he would be in good prestigious company.
