DSAI free to contest PD by-elections

— Surendra Ananth

There has been some discussion on the granting of a royal pardon to Dato’ Seri Anwar Bin Ibrahim (DSAI) by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (YDPA). In particular, some have taken issue with the words used in granting such pardon. It is my view that as long as the word “pardon” was used, DSAI is free to contest in the PD by-elections. It might be useful to understand the nature of the power to pardon.
