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.

I somewhat expected the court to rule in favor of the Pangkor pirate. But somehow, having it confirmed today has our hopes dashed. It also confirms that there is no MORE hope in the country's judiciary.
Never mind, I consoled myself, we will fight on - surely the day will come when we will be vindicated.
A salute to Nizar for putting up a gentlemen fight - he's still PM for Bukit Gantang and still appreciated for what he's done for Perak in his short stint in Perak.

Democracy and judiciary have been sodomised and raped - it's an act so vile!
We cannot forget this.

The validity of any proceedings in the Legislative Assembly of any State shall not be questioned in any court”. - Article 72(1) of the Federal Constitution

Our understanding of the Malaysian monarchy is that it's constitutional. It exists to thrive on the ideals and the will of the rakyat in justice promulgated in Parliament or the State DUN. But it isn't!.

Of course in our daily lives we have witnessed citizens killed by Royalty and we are not allowed to discuss it. Doing so, will render you to imprisonment. There has clearly been a perversion of the law. It leaves little to say for our institutions.

Oops, I meant 'MP' in the previous comment.But this slip of the hand maybe the subconscious mind telling the truth - that he maybe the future PM!

Another quote from Robert Harris' Imperium -

' Sometimes if you find yourself stuck in politics, the thing to do is to start a fight - start a fight, even if you do not know how you are going to win, because it is only when a fight is on, and everything is in motion, that you can hope to see your way through.'

Therefore, Perakians, we have to fight on!

Guys, do you honestly believe Najis would give up Perak so easily after so much controversy?
Since it already such a stinko case, he probably thought it best to go the whole hog. Most courts these days are beholden on their dUMNO masters, acting as unjust and dishonourable rubber-stamps.
May all who had their dirty hands in this infamous case, remain cursed for the rest of their miserable lives.
