As I expected - Court of Appeal granted a STAY order - Nizar cannot perform functions as MB until...

Just as we thought, the Court of Appeal has granted stay.....and Nizar has to wait until the Court of Appeal hears the appeal before he can perform his functions as MB again...

Usually it is a 3-man panel that sits at the Court of Appeal - but this time there was only one judge sitting. Not to say that it has never occurred - but this surely was a matter of great importance, and it should have been heard by a 3-person panel at the Court of Appeal.

Of, course the AG supported the BN in their stay application...

Now, we have to wait for the full appeal - which the BN would really not be interested in rushing, and I do not think the Court of Appeal will expedite it... Will the appeal be heard tomorrow...or next week...or months later?

This appeal should be expedited, and heard and disposed off soonest - not later than within 7 days from today. The Court of Appeal should have given directions to that effect today, because if they do not this may be delayed...

The Court of Appeal has granted a stay application to Zambry Abd Kadir against a High Court decision yesterday which proclaimed Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin as the rightful Perak menteri besar.

The stay would put on hold the decision of the High Court pending an appeal by Zambry. He had filed his appeal this morning and it will be heard at an earliest date possible.

The decision has once again put the political situation in Perak in a limbo with both Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat fighting one another to become the menteri besar.

Court of Appeal judge Ramly Mohd Ali heard the stay application on his own, departing from the usual three-member panel. Such a departure is acceptable and has been done previously for various grounds.

Zambry's lawyers argued that the stay was important to stop Nizar from trying seek the approval of the Perak sultan to dissolve the state assembly.

His lead counsel Cecil Abraham added that if dissolution was granted, Zambry's appeal would be academic.

Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail supported the motion. He also argued that the suspension of state secretary and state legal advisor by Nizar late last night was illegal

Nizar's lawyer Sulaiman Abdullah urged the court to fix an early date for appeal.
as these were federal appointments. - Malaysiakini, 12/5/2009, Zambry gets a stay order

I'm sick of all this. BN will never allow true democracy to live. Cakap satu macam, bikin lain macam..HYPOCRITES..MUNAFIQS!!

The high court has already made the decision. A decision that pretty much everybody knows is right!!

BN is just playing dirty politics while being stupid & greedy.

GE 13....KICK BN OUT!!

Kalau Zambry ada telur anak jantan, apa kata dia dan Nizar berpakat mengadap Sultan untuk bubarkan DUN. Biar rakyat yang tentukan kerana rakyat Perak sedang menderita akan krisis ciptaan ini. Biar rakyat yang tentukan.. negara kita kan negara demokrasi?... Mengenai kos piilihanraya yang tinggi, rasanya kos rakyat menderita akan krisis ini lagi tinggi... pelabur pun takut masuk ke Perak akibat ketidaktentuan ini.. yang dah ada di Perak pun boleh keluar ke Selangor dan Pulau Pinang yang diperintah PR. Oleh itu, sudah seharusnya BN setuju kuasa dikembalikan kepada rakyat Perak kerana kalau tidak, BN dilihat sebagai GILA KUASA kerana terus mahu bergayut memerintah Perak tanpa pilihan rakyat dan tanpa mahu kembalikan kepada rakyat untuk memutuskan siapa yang layak membentuk kerajaan....

But when will people on the street have their say
To make the final decision as to 'Yes' or 'Nay'!
