Tragedy for 1Malaysia - Perak Sultan sacked Chief Minister
Feb 9, 10 11:10am - Malaysiakini
The Federal Court, the highest court in the country, has delivered a unanimous decision in declaring that Zambry Abd Kadir of BN is the rightful Perak menteri besar.
In doing so at 11am, it also dimissed the application by Pakatan Rakyat's Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin.
It is also the end of the road for Mohd Nizar's claim to the post. His lawyer Leong Cheok Keng said a review of the decision would not be sought.
Justice Arifin who read the judgment ruled that it is not necessary for a vote of confidence to be done in the state assembly, and that the sultan can sack the MB (Menteri Besar/Chief Minister). Zambry therefore commands support in the House with 31 seats.
