According to Anwar, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s statement, on Sunday, saying the PKR failed to understands the Selangor Constitution is extreme.

“Najib has been with the Umno leadership since 1983 and 1993, and supports the amendment in the Constitution to clarify the jurisdiction of His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, in accordance with the principles of the constitutional monarchy.

“As the Prime Minster, Najib should be honest with his party’s stand and Barisan Nasional, and not attack PKR for complying with the same customs,” he said.

According to Anwar, Najib also knows the history of Umno’s rule since the country’s independence in 1957. The party and Barisan Nasional only submitted one Assemblyman or Parliamentarian’s name for the position of Chief Minister, Menteri Besar or Prime Minister.

“PKR reiterates our stand to uphold the sovereignty of the Malay Rulers and the institution of constitutional monarchy.

“This is emphasised in the letters by Dr Wan Azizah, the President of PKR, to His Royal Highness the Sultan of Selangor,” he said.
