what Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is doing is WRONG and tantamount to abuse of power and abuse of the Fed Constitution. The ONLY entity that can order such mobilisation is the YD Agong NOT a Minister. Did the Agong give the command?? I think you should blow this up for all to see.

The Supreme Commander is the highest ranking office in the command structure of the Malaysian military. The office dates to the 1957 creation of the Malay federation. Its current role, duties and powers are regulated by the Constitution of Malaysia and the Federal Armed Forces Act. The Malaysian Constitution establishes that the office of Supreme Commander is attached to the person of the Federal Head of State.
Federal Constitution, Article 41- The Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall be the Supreme Commander of the Armed ForcesThe Federal Armed Forces Act was passed by the Federal Parliament in order to consolidate in one law all the regulations governing the three services ( Army, Navy and Air Force ), it establishes the function and duties of the Federal Head of State in his capacity as Supreme Commander.
One can cheat and get away with it. One too can murder and get away with it. But when convicted and sentence to death, only the King can pardon.
As Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, I can presume that power to mobilise can only be the King's prerogative. This will be best answered by military personnel, past and present. Please sirs, your comments.
