Senator

Mkini BM and Chinese carried the news about Ezam Mohd Nor and Palaniviel et al. to be appointed senator. (Too bad, No subscription to Mkini English plus The Malaysian Insider hasn’t posted up the news yet).

Have more to say about the Senate (Dewan Negara) of Malaysia but I’ll see if I’ve the chance next time. Just a quick thought here…

Article 45(2) in the Federal Constitution of Malaysia states that:

The members (of the senate) to be appointed by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall be persons who in his opinion have rendered distinguished public service or have achieved distinction in the professions, commerce, industry, agriculture, cultural activities or social service or are representative of racial minorities or are capable of representing the interests of aborigines. (Underlined words are mine)

So… Senator-designate Ezam Mohd Nor “achieved distinction” in frogging industry? Or he represents the interests of endemic frogs (i.e. aborigines)?
