Subject: On Court rules Nizar as legitimate MB
(Formerly) confused: I am confused no more! The constitution is valid!
I pray that all is done right by the people this time ... To the
Perak Citizen: Congratulation to Nizar and his Pakatan team, and
thanks to lawyer Sulaiman Abdullah and team. The court has finally
declared Nizar as the legitimate Menteri Besar of Perak. The
legitimate Menteri Besar should have an audience with the Sultan of
Perak and dissolve the State Assembly immediately.
Baiyuensheng: I have a question now Nizar has been declared the
legitimate MB. Let's say if the present MB losses confidence of the
majority of the assembly but manage to cling on to power since he is
able to cohort with the Speaker who can reject motion of a vote of
confidence, what is the alternate recourse? I think there is a
similarity with the Terengganu state government. Anyway, thank
goodness the constitution is upheld.
Now that the court has ruled. Can the people take Zambry, the police,
state secretariat and the rest that have violated the constitution for
treason? Or, they have committed no crime?
CK: If the speaker refuses to accept a motion of no-confidence, I
suppose the opposition can invite the Sultan to the State Assembly
Hall to table the motion. We are all glad that the judiciary seems to
be no longer under the shadow of the 1988 judiciary crisis and it
proves that the judge can make his judgment without fear or favour.
Let's hope that the government's appeal to the upper courts will be
Selvadurai: With this ruling it should establish that the meeting
under the tree legitimate. This then means that all the resolutions
passed are also legitimate. Way to go Nizar Jamaluddin and company.
Please make sure all the civil servants who went out of the way to
thaw your rule are transferred to positions where they can not disrupt
the election process before the assembly is dissolved.
