Perlembagaan / Undang-Undang Tubuh Negeri Selangor

(1) His Highness shall appoint a Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan to be called in English the State Executive Council.

(2) The State Executive Council shall be appointed as follows, that is to say-

(a) His Highness shall first appoint as Menteri Besar to preside over the State Executive Council, a member of the Legisla­tive Assembly who in His judgment is likely to command the confidence of the majority of thee members of the Assem­bly;

(b) He shall on the advice of the Menteri Besar appoint not more than ten nor less than four other members from among the members of the Legislative Assembly; and

(c) He shall, if the Menteri Besar so advises, appoint a member of the State Executive Council to be the Deputy Menteri Besar who shall assist the Menteri Besar in the exercise of his powers, the performance of his duties and the carrying out of his functions, and on the directions of the Menteri Besar, he shall exercise such powers, perform such duties and carry out such functions of the Menteri Besar, but if an appointment is made while the Legislative Assembly is dis­solved, a person who was a member of the last Legislative Assembly may be appointed but shall not continue to hold office after the first sitting of the next Legislative Assembly, unless he is a member thereof.
(3) Notwithstanding anything in this Article, a person who is a citizen by naturalisation or by registration under Article 17 of the Federal Constitution shall not be appointed a Menteri Besar.

Q: Apakah tafsiran "who in His judgment is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the members of the Assem­bly"?

Q: Bilakah berlaku atau siapakah yang memutuskan terjadinya keadaan "ceases to command the confidence of the majority of the members of the Legislative Assembly dalam perenggan (6)"?

Q:  Adakah Sultan mempunyai bidang kuasa untuk menentukan isu tersebut atau ianya sebenarnya merupakan bidang kuasa Legislative Assembly  melalui undi tidak percaya kepada Menteri Besar?

Seingat penulis, sekiranya perkara ini dibawa ke mahkamah...dasar awam memerlukan mahkamah melihat "konvensyen perlembagaan" dalam apa-apa cara untuk melaksanakan prinsip demokrasi dengan membenarkan wakil rakyat membuat keputusan telus dan selepas berlakunya perbahasan.

Apabila Menteri Besar tidak lagi mendapat kepercayaan majoriti, sebenarnya amat mudah untuk di ketahui rakyat. Anggota Dewan boleh menandatangani Surat Akuan memperjelaskan sama ada anggota dewan masih lagi mempunyai kepercayaan kepada Menteri Besar atau sebaliknya. Malang dalam kes Selangor ini, ..... agak penulis, walaupun Negeri Selangor mempunyai cukup minimum 4 orang ahli Exco mewakili PAS, pembentangan rang undang-undang dijangkakan terjejas. Mahu tak mahu, Menteri Besar perlu mempertimbangkan untuk melepaskan kedudukannya sebelum keadaan menjadi bertambah parah.
