First, Sultan decides whether to dissolve Legislative Assembly or not...

PERAK - it is a mess, and we have to wait for the His Royal Highness the Sultan of Perak to decide whether to decide the Legislative Assembly or not. A dissolution means new elections in Perak.

If the Sultan refuses to dissolve the Legislative Assembly, then the Menteri Besar who ceases to command the confidence of the majority shall tender his own resignation and the resignation of the rest of the Executive Council..

All these is clear from Article 16(6) of the Perak State Constitution....

1st - Request the Sultan to dissolve the Legislative Assembly

2nd- If Sultan agree - then we will have new general elections for Perak. The MB and his Executive Council would then be the interim caretaker government until after the new elections.

3rd - If the Sultan refuses to dissolve the Legislative Assembly, then the Menteri Besar and the Exco resigns.... Then the Sultan will appoint another, who 'in his judgment is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the members of the Assembly...'

WHAT COSTS MOST WHEN GHOSTS PLAY HOST?

While some politicians play their games like 'ghosts'
The ordinary folks are the people who suffer the most
Does it matter now which party is playing the 'host'
When ultimately everybody needs to consider the cost

Just remember that there is always a catch somewhere in the succession! There might be a bargain to be made to ensure that mine endures now that the opportunity has presented itself. Don't discount anything. As they say in golf, a game which a lot of people play, anything can happen!
