Chief Ministers In Malaysia

The Menteri Besar (Jawi:منتري بسر; literally "Great Minister" in Malay) is the chief executive of the state government for states in Malaysia with hereditary rulers. For states without a monarch, the title Chief Minister (Ketua Menteri) is used. The title 'Menteri Besar' is usually untranslated in the English media in Malaysia, but is typically translated as 'Chief Minister' by foreign media.

According to protocol, all Menteris Besar and Chief Ministers are styled Yang Amat Berhormat (abbreviated Y.A.B.), which means "The Most Honourable".

Famous quotes containing the words chief and/or ministers:

    Thus your fathers were made
    Fellow citizens of the saints, of the household of GOD, being built upon the foundation
    Of apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself the chief cornerstone.
    But you, have you built well, that you now sit helpless in a ruined house?
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    This was the Eastham famous of late years for its camp- meetings, held in a grove near by, to which thousands flock from all parts of the Bay. We conjectured that the reason for the perhaps unusual, if not unhealthful development of the religious sentiment here, was the fact that a large portion of the population are women whose husbands and sons are either abroad on the sea, or else drowned, and there is nobody but they and the ministers left behind.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
