The caretaker government’s role

For those of you who are unsure what role does a caretaker government play once the Parliament is dissolved to prepare for the next General Election. Here's an excerpt that will help you understand them.
Infographics from Bernama.


By Syahredzan Johan

Elections these days are hard- fought affairs. The margins of victory can be very slim. Any advantage that one side has may affect the outcome of the elections.

That is why there is a need to ensure elections are fair to all those contesting.

The dissolution of Parliament does not mean that the Federal Government and the various state governments are also dissolved along with the legislature.

When the legislature is dissolved to pave the way for elections, and until a new government is formed, the one that governs the Federation or the states is known as the “caretaker government”, according to the practice in many Commonwealth countries, including Malaysia.

However, the Federal and state constitutions do not expressly provide for the caretaker government. The constitutions are silent on the role of these “caretaker governments”; they are not provided for expressly by law.

A caretaker government is a minimum government. It is only supposed to ensure the day-to-day administration of the state can continue without disruption as a caretaker.

A caretaker government should not, for example, do anything which may bind the new government. It should not announce new government initiatives or make new policy decisions. It should not enter into new agreements or undertakings. It should also not make new appointments.

Most importantly, it should not use government machinery and resources in any way which would give any political party an advantage.

The reasoning is simple; the caretaker government no longer has the full mandate of the electorate. As the legislative branch has been dissolved, there are no checks and balances to the actions of the executive branch.

Unfortunately, the caretaker government convention is not respected or followed by the Federal or state governments.

Every day since dissolution, there are reports of initiatives or handouts by an incumbent government, on both sides of the political divide.

The caretaker government convention is also recognised in other jurisdictions. In most other jurisdictions, the caretaker government is not codified and is merely a convention.

However, the convention is respected and adhered to strictly by the incumbents.

Ideally, this should be the case in our country. There should not be a need to codify the convention into law by way of legislation. But because our political parties do not appear to respect the convention, we may need to enact a law to enshrine the caretaker convention and ensure its compliance.

Check your Voter's Status Now for #PRU14


All Malaysian young and old would know by now that the election is scheduled to be held on the 9th of May, 2018.  And if you are above the voting age, you head over to https://pengundi.spr.gov.my and check to make sure your voter's information and polling station is listed down correctly, if you are not a voter, you should also check as there's been reports of voter's details listed in locations they have not been to or registered to before.

If you don't want to use their website, you can also use the SPR's SMS service by texting "SPR semak <IC no>" & send to 15888. They will return a SMS on your polling station.



I've checked mine and all the details are the same as the previous years so it is all good but some poor souls I know are not so lucky, and under the election law, they are not allowed to change the details until after the Malaysia General Election is over. So either they head to the parts unknown to them to vote, or they forego their rights to vote. In any case, do go and lodge a police report if you fall victim to such an incident.

Dear fellow Malaysians, time to exercise your rights. To those of you who are able to vote but didn't bother to register, or simply refuse to vote, you people have no right whatsoever to complain about the govt. You're nothing but a hypocrite and a horrible disappointment to the country.

Unless you're in the medical field and you've patients depending on you, dealing with matters pertaining life and death, you've NO excuse whatsoever if your polling station is located nearby. If you're hundreds of miles away from your polling station and it's next to impossible to apply for leave and travel home and back within 24 hours (since the idiots up there decided to have it in the middle of the bleeding week), I suppose you can't be blamed because of the horrible choice of date.

To those of you who are booking flights, train and bus rides back home although you live so far away, I give you my utmost respect. Thank you for making sacrifices to help make a change for a better future for Malaysia.

*Note: I'm not a politician or am involved with any political parties. I am just a man who wants to exercise his right to vote and want to choose the right people who has the community at heart and not those who only has their own personal gains in mind.
