Salleh Keruak: Democracy means following the constitution



The opposition does not seem to accept the Westminster system of choosing a government and instead wants to resort to street demonstrations in changing the government, Communications and Multimedia Minister Salleh Said Keruak said tonight.
He said that this act was certainly something not provided for in a democracy or in the constitution.
Salleh also said that non-governmental organisations (NGOs) were supposed to fight for a better system or a better country.
"How can unconstitutional methods in changing governments be better when it triggers chaos and anarchy?" he asked in a posting in his blog.

Salleh said that the definition of democracy was the rule of the people by the people through majority choice via a representative government.
"In Malaysia's case, this means 30 million citizens through 15-20 million voters send 222 representatives to Parliament.
"As in the UK (United Kingdom) and US (United States), this may not necessarily mean majority vote but majority seats or something similar such as electoral college," he added.
