But don't expect that to change the lifestyles of our BN leaders even for a temporary period, after having been through years of being accustomed to such continuity.
According to Uppercaise:
'Now no one is a member of Parliament
And no one is a so-called ‘incumbent’ MP
”Incumbent” is a word used mainly in the United States — they have a different political system. Congress is not dissolved during an election. A member of Congress will conduct his election campaign while still a sitting member of Congress. As a sitting member, he is the “incumbent”, i.e. the person still holding the position. That does not apply in Parliamentary systems. When Parliament is dissolved, there is no Parliament. No parliament, no members. Therefore no such thing as an “incumbent” member of Parliament.
PM stays in office by courtesy and convention...
A caretaker govt can only handle routine matters...
A caretaker govt cannot use govt facilities for party campaigns...
• The same applies when a state assembly is dissolved. Tiada Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN), tiada ADUN.
Will all politicians really respect the rule of law?
As Dr Wong Chin Huat commented in Facebook : 'Profound understanding of the political system especially the nuances between presidentialism and parliamentarianism, so rarely found amongst Malaysian commentators.'
