Court says Nizar is MB – Lock up the offices now….

Charles Hector <[email protected]>
The High Court has:-
1- Declared that Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin is still the legitimate Menteri Besar of Perak
2- Refused the application of Zambry’s lawyers to stay the effect of this order

This means Nizar can walk back into the Menteri Besar’s office today…with his Exco and take over the work of the government of Perak. [This means that Zambry and his Exco must. logically, be immediately locked out of their offices to prevent any taking away of files, etc or sabotage…But will this happen? Or will the there be a different treatment for PR, compared with the treatment accorded to BN].
The Kuala Lumpur High Court today paved the way for a fresh battle in Perak by declaring that BN’s Zambry Abd Kadir is not the legitimate menteri besar of Perak.
Justice Abdul Aziz Abd Rahim then proclaimed Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin as the rightful Perak menteri besar.
His decision rubberstamped ousted Pakatan Rakyat MB Nizar’s argument that he is the legitimate menteri besar.
Zambry’s lawyer Cecil Abraham’s application for a stay of proceedings pending an appeal was also rejected by the court.
The judge said if the Sultan of Perak had wanted to order Nizar’s resignation, he should have called the assembly to table a motion of no-confidence against PAS leader.
He said that a new menteri besar could not be appointed as the office had not been vacated
The decision is now set to bring about more uncertainty in the state. – Malaysiakini, 11/5/2009, Court rules Nizar is legitimate MB
Well, this decision goes against the BN – so I would not be surprised that there will be an appeal filed to the Court of Appeal, and a stay will be granted by the Court of Appeal speedily to ensure that Nizar and Exco is kept out ….’temporarily’ until the Court of Appeal hears and decide on the appeal.
OR – tommorrow(or very soon) there will be an emergency no confidence motion on Nizar (the legitimate MB) tabled in the State Assembly of Perak. Since the Court has declared that Nizar is still the MB – we need a no confidence vote against Nizar – no a confidence vote for Zambry….
But wait – the way in which the PR Speaker was removed was all wrong – in fact, even the changing of the seating position also was wrong. Who is the speaker?
It is all a mess – and it is so difficult following it all…
BEST SOLUTION – Go back to the people, and have a fresh Perak State Elections. Let the people decide..
Najib may be considering another solution – maybe just declare Emergency in Perak, maybe arrest and detain a few possibly under the ISA. Why? For National Security , of course. [Let us not forget Najib’s role in the Perak mess….]
UMNO led-BN, I believe is really scared of calling for fresh elections in Perak now – because it fears that it will lose badly – worse than in GE2008.
But maybe, to call for a Perakl Elections now may be best for BN in the long run. The Perak problem, I believe, is not going to go away – it will ‘fester’…and ‘fester’ …and become worse and worse.
IT is stupid for the BN to take this ‘Perak problem’ to the next General Elections – better settle it now, and prepare for the fight back at the next General Elections.
Therefore, let us have fresh Elections and let the people decide on who they want to be their government – the BN or the PR. Best it be done soonest…
