Where is the new residence of Perak MB? Why file in KL, not Ipoh?

For us who believe that Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin is still the Menteri Besar of Perak - we must refer to him as such...not as "the ousted Menteri Besar" or former Menteri Besar.

To differentiate from the other 'illegal Menteri Besar', we could refer to him as the true PR Menteri Besar...

It is also important that Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin also believes as behaves as the true Perak MB?

It may be a misreporting - but a Menteri Besar will not follow 'decisions' of State Secretary. He would consider the request ...and make a decision himself of whether he would want to move out or not from the official residence of the Perak MB.

Who is Dr Zambry Abd Kadir to the Perak MB? He is, of course, the illegal Menteri Besar or the pseudo Menteri Besar - never the new Menteri Besar. Why? To refer to Zambry as the new Menteri Besar would be in fact an acknowledgment that he is the Menteri Besar now.

The position that must be taken is that Dr Zambry Abd Kadir is that he is not the Menteri Besar of Perak - and there is also no new Executive Council members...In fact, all the decisions and actions of Zambry and gang will be invalid. Zambry & his "exco" would be void ab inition (void from the very beginning...)

Zambry Abd Kadir may be personally liable for losses incurred by reason of the decisions/actions he now tries to take as 'MB' - because he has full notice that his appointment is 'extra-constitutional', invalid, illegal, ...Contracts/Agreements/etc he enters into may not be binding at all..

Ousted Perak Menteri Besar Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin today announced that he would be vacating the menteri besar's official residence in 10 days.

Mohd Nizar also announced that he would be filing a suit against the appointment of new Perak Menteri Besar Dr Zambry Abd Kadir tomorrow at the Kuala Lumpur High Court at 11am.

"I urge people to gather peacefully to show support. Please act with restraint and respect the law," he said. - Malaysiakini, 12/2/2009, Nizar to vacate official residence, file suit tomorrow


I wonder also why he is going to file the suit in the Kuala Lumpur High Court - should he not be filing it in the Ipoh High Court? I do not really have much confidence in the independence of the Malaysian Judiciary especially under the leadership of Zaki Azmi - and if you file in the wrong court, the matter could be struck off on a technicality...or procedural non-compliance. Hope the MB of Perak is getting correct legal advice...

In any event, when it goes to court - I hope that this matter is expedited and decided very quickly.

The mess has been created by Mohd Najib Razak and the Barisan Nasional, assisted also by the 'ill-advised' erroneous actions of HRH the Sultan of Perak...

If the Sultan of Perak decided not to dissolve the State Legislative Assembly - then they should have just waited for the sitting of the Legislative Assembly for the tabling of a no confidence motion - and if at that stage, it will be made clear as to whether the present Perak MB, Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin, enjoys the confidence of the majority or not...If it is shown that he does not, then he will have to resign ...and we can start the process of getting a new Menteri Besar. (I believe some of those BN and Independents may on that day when the vote is taken be in support of the he present Perak MB, Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin...and that is that.)

An emergency session could have been called and held so easily - but alas Najib's impatience to conqure Perak now has landed Perak and its people into a mess. What did he think? Did he believe that he could have forced Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin to tender his resignation....

Nizar is being loyal to the rule of law

On the contrary, Nizar will go down in history as a defender of parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy in the 481-year-old Sultanate of Perak, politically one of the most developed states since the 1950s. He is being loyal to the political system, to the rule of law.

The subjects of Perak and citizens of Malaysia who choose to stand by the loyal menteri besar are similarly upholding rule of law and the political system - Nut Graph, 6/2/2009, Perak must not fail
