Tun Fairuz to be next Penang Governor?

According to a reliable source, former Chief Justice Tun Ahmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Halim is to be appointed the next Yang Dipertua Negeri (Governor) of Penang.

As a Penangite, I do think that it is in the interest of the state to do so since his name was linked to alleged brokering of judges' appointments exposed in the Lingam Tape (Lingamgate) scandal.

The Governor is the representative of His Majesty The Yang Di-Pertuan Agong as the Head of State.

Do we need to petition His Majesty not to appoint Tun Ahmad Fairuz as Penang's Head of State?

I was told that there are several prominent Penangites (Tun Ahmad Fairuz is a Kedahan) that can be considered for the ceremonial post such as senior lawyer Tan Sri Khalid Ahmad Sulaiman, Penang Malay Association president Datuk Seri Yusof Latif, retired Court of Appeal Judge Shaikh Daud Ismail and Sports Commissioner Tan Sri Elyas Omar.

Anwar Ibrahim pun orang Penang beb ...

But I think the post should go to one of Pak Lah's close relatives. The son-in-law pun qualify ... he can use the protection that comes along with the SIL title to teach Penang Malays about the merits of kissing the keris. Asal usul tak penting. Gabenor Melaka sekarang pun orang Pa'hang.

About time a non-Malay to be appointed as Govenor ?

Why not? The first Governor of Melaka is a Chinese-Malayan. Any qualified Malaysian can be appointed and not necessary a Malay-Malaysian. But the question is can the politicians accept it? I mean UMNO politicians since the Governorship has been given to retired UMNO politicians.

Untuk pengetahuan Sdr Ahirudin Attan,

Benar DSAI Anwar Ibrahim orang Penang (Cherok Tok Kun), tapi dah tentu dia tak dak peluang langsung.

Orang Penang tak kisah sangat sapa yang dilantik jadi Gabnor. Tak semestinya orang Penang. Gabnor pertama orang Selangor, yang kedua dan ketiga orang Kedah, keempat dan kelima orang Johor, keenam dan ketujuh baru anak Penang.

Orang Penang tak kisah atau takdak kuasa nak membantah siapa yg akan jadi Gavernor?
Rasanya kalau sapa2 pun yg ada kuasa/pengaruh/rapat dgn pemerintah muncul dan minta jawatan tu, ....orang penang tetap terkunci mulut tak boleh nak kata apa2.
