And, so it has come to pass.
As Ganesan explained, the man … had accepted the advice of Muhyiddin, who had ulterior motives.
So, the million ringgit question is whether we, the rakyat, will accept it by cowering in fear in our homes until 1st August?

Ganesan explained there can be a legal challenge to the emergency[partial so that he remain in power?]Yes, I know a judicial challenge does not mean it will succeed. So, who will mount the challenge?
The Malaysian Bar? Anwar Ibrahim?
