Nizar -vs- Zambry :- The Court of Appeal is ALREADY hearing the stay application...

When it comes to certain parties, the Courts in Malaysia can move really so fast...

Just yesterday evening, the High Court pronounced that Nizar is still the legitimate Menteri Besar of Perak.

The High Court also denied BN- Zambry's application for a stay of the effect of the High Court order pending an appeal to the Court of Appeal.

Today, we hear that the appeal has been filed - and the Court of Appeal is now hearing the application for a stay.. The hearing allegedly started at 11.45am..

I would not at all be surprised that the Court of Appeal grants a stay - and thus it would mean that BN's Zambry will be the Perak Menteri Besar...

In fact, when this whole issue started, the courts should have just granted a stay then to preserve status quo - i.e. keeping Nizar as Menteri Besar until all cases/disputes are heard and disposed off.. No stay then...

Now, after the High Court judge had heard all arguments and made an order - will the Court of Appeal grant a stay in favour of BN.

Rightly, I am of the opinion that no stay should be granted by the Court of Appeal. What the Court of Appeal may do is to expedite the hearing of the appeal of BN's Zambry...

But, as I stated earlier, I too believe that the best solution would be just to go back to the people of Perak. Have a new elections, and let the people decide.

Mohd Osman Jailu (Changkat Jering) and Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi (Behrang), now pro-BN independents, together with Hee can always be fielded as BN candidates this time around...
Zambry Abd Kadir has filed an appeal in the Court of Appeal against the High Court’s decision not to recognise him as the legitimate Perak menteri besar.

His lawyers have also lodged an application for a stay of yesterday’s decision, pending the appeal.

The application is being heard by an one-man panel of justice Ramly Mohd Ali.

Ramly began hearing the application at 11.45am at the Palace of Justice in Putrajaya. - Malaysiakini, 12/5/2009,

I feel BN will never dissolve the Perak state assembly.

Simply because they know after the dirty politics they have played...they will lose!!

Add the Perak crisis to a list of piling reasons to KICK BN OUT AT GE13!

In this world of ours do we want rule of law
Or do we really prefer the law of rule
Whereby we can frequently get to see see-saw
In action on who's more powerful to move the mule

Time and the hour runs through the roughest day"
But when will people on the street have their say
To make the final decision as to 'Yes' or 'Nay'!
