The constitutional monarch’s call is not a decree nor a command, according to this lawyer’s opinion.
MPs should vet Budget 2021 and make sure the backdoor PM is not using it to feed more leches and frogs.
Yes, if need be, MPs should withold support for Budget 2021 if it is not a rakyat centric one.
