Perak Political Drama Takes A Turn

The political drama in Perak becomes more messy now. The court rules that Nizar is the MB. We have to respect the decision of the court. It also goes to demonstrate that our court is free of political interference. It is a good sign for the judiciary. We should not have the attitude that when the court decides for the government, it is not fair and when it decides against the government, it is justice.

Nizar should now convene a state assembly to see whether he enjoys the support of the majority of the state assemblyman. Who knows there maybe some katak politicians who may take this opportunity to jump ship again. If he fails to command the majority of the state assemblyman, then he can:

1) Resign as the MB, Seek an audience with the Sultan to dissolve the assembly and call for fresh election or;

2) Resign as the MB and let the party who enjoys the support of the majority of state assemblyman to be the MB.

Dissolving the state assembly and calling for fresh election will require the consent of the Sultan. Nizar is unlikely to convene an emergency meeting since he is likely to face a vote of no confidence. BN will definitely push for an emergency state assembly sitting.

BN can choose to appeal to the High Court ruling and this may then drag on effectively rendering the Pakatan state government ineffective.

Personally, I feel that a fresh state election will be the best way to resolve this stalemate. Let the rakyat decides and once for all, we resolve this problem, which is not doing anybody any good.

霹雳州政局动荡不休。法庭已裁决尼查为合法的霹雳州务大臣,我们必须遵从法庭的判决。这项判决也显示此案件不受政治干预,体现司法公正。因此,人民也不该偏执地把对政府有利的判决解读为偏袒不公,而与政府意愿相违的判决就是正义的判决。

尼查已获合法地位,他应该即刻召开州议会,以确认他是否获得多数议员的支持。说不定还有一些“政治青蛙”想趁势投机再跳槽。

如果尼查无法取得多数议员的支持,他有以下两项选择:


1) 辞去州务大臣一职, 觐见苏丹要求解散州议会;或
2) 辞职让位给党内能获得多数议员支持的领袖出任州务大臣。

要解散州议会及重新举行州选举必须得到苏丹御准。尼查召开紧急议会的可能性不大,我相信国阵议员会迫以要求召开紧急议会,对尼查进行不信认投票。

而国阵可以选择上诉,但这样做可能会继续拖沓问题,使民联州政府无法有效工作。

我个人则认为,解散州议会进行重选是最明智的做法。还政于民,就是让人民推选他们的政府,一劳永逸在霹雳州僵持不下的政治纷争。

Dear Datuk Seri Dr Chua.

You know that the first thing that Nizar did was to ask for the dissolution of the State Assembly.

It is BN who is trying to tie everything in a legal mess. Where is the goodwill to resolve the problem.

By the way, Maybe you should move to Gerakan. I think Gerakan can do with a person of your calibre.

Ya why ya. why they didn't respect the decision of the court? still wanna files the appeal. pls la. ask OneM to stop it.

"It also goes to demonstrate that our court is free of political interference."

Can we conclude from this single case that our court is free of political interference?

If I have a badminton match with Lin Dan and the linesmen are biased in favour of me. Lin Dan can still win the match easily. Does it mean the linesmen are not biased?

Howeve, I agree with you that a fresh state election will be the best way to resolve this stalemate.

Dr. Chua,

Your article a little late and maybe you are not in the "know"

The Court of Appeal has granted a stay super lightning fast. This is a stay for a judgement against the position of MB. MB is a very powerful position as you have seen in the recent state assembly fiasco of BN.

Under no circumstances a stay should be granted, expedite the hearing by all means after all you have the govt machinery behind you

Now the rest of the world that has not already laughed at us will laugh at us.

This a circus now and you can guess who is the ring master

Dear Dr Chua,

You said: There have been many attempts by Parti Keadilan Rakyat leaders to make me jump ship. But I have not reached the crossroads yet.When I am about to jump, I will let you know," he said in a "live" chat with New Straits Times readers.

Malaysians said: " It is better Dr Chua to rescue himself from the sinking Titanic BN corrupted ship now. otherwise, your MCA goons will
jump faster to PR if they smell smoke from fire in BN ship. As mentioned by former MCA Head, Ong Ka Tin that UMNO goons have been a BIG Bully toward MCA leaders and Chinese communities for past 5 decades. Does Dr Chua still want to stay as a doggy pet in UMNO teams, to be bullied and kicked like a stray dog soon if your popularity is gone in MCA ? Yes. Ong Tee Keat has keep his big mouth shut up by UMNO goons. He dared not open his vocal mouth again unlike his junior time in MCA.

IN SHORT, IT IS A GOOD FUTURE FOR YOUR JR CHUA TO JUMP SHIP AND JOIN DAP OR KEADILAN SINCE THE NEW GENERATION OF MALAYSIANS WANT TO CHANGE AND ACCEPT DAP AND KEADILAN AS THEIR NEW TREND PARTIES IN MALAYSIA.

OOPS! OLD BN JUNK SHIPS ARE TIME TO CALL BACK TO THE MUZIUM NEGARA FOREVER. BN IS A ROTTEN SHIP WITH CORRUPTED TRACK RECORDS WITH NO HOPE TO REVIVE AGAIN.

THE NEW SLOGAN TODAY IS
"1BLACK MALAYSIA, DEMOCRACY FIRST, ELECTION NOW"......EEE HAAA !!! PERAKIANS OVERJOYED WITH THE HIGH COURT DECISION TO RETAIN NIZAR AS GOOD MB AND REMOVE HARAM ZOMBIE OUT OF PERAK.

BRAVO! THE PEOPLE WON AGAIN!
MAKKAL SAKTI // PEOPLE POWER TODAY

More importantly is to RESPECT the rakyat! what the hell on earth umno think they can wrest a government with that way of money offer?
ASK YOUR MASTERS TO STOP THE DRAMA!

LBP said...

As we all comment on this, the Court of Appeal with a "SUPER HIGH EFFICIENCY WHICH PROBABLY BROKE THE WORLD RECORD" granted a "stay order", that means the Zamry tak sah fella is still the MB...what the crap man!!! When PR filed the appeal in High court, it took months until May 11 to give the verdict, when BN filed an appeal, it was like IMMEDIATE!!

Salutations, salutations, that's the "It also goes to demonstrate that our court is free of political interference." - REALLY CRAP!!!

But Dr Chua, I agree that Perak state assembly shud be dissolved and get this settled once and for all - Bottleneck here is the BN is hijacking all country's system to grant things in favor of Barisan Nasional, and BN won't dissolve it...WHO IS THE EVIL here - Barian Nasional!!!!

对咯:)还政予民不就好了嘛
干吗还要让自己在民心上再次失守溃堤?
:D

VM said...

When Nizar won the court order yesterday, first thing he did was to meet with the Sultan and ask for dissolution of the state assembly, that shows PR is not power-crazy, they RESPECT the RAKYAT and let RAKYAT decide!!

THE CHIEF CULPRIT here is Mr. N and his cronies who propagate so-called "1Malaysia" in front but instead playing all the dirty tricks at the back!!

BN current leadership is utterly despicable and have no sincerity in resolving the deadlock at all!

SamWise said...

As you were saying something about judiciary being independent and something something....

now should you post another post to say that what kinda crap is the judiciary is. please...

bslim said...

Your comment: Personally, I "feel" that......may I ask what is your party's official stand on this?
MCA is the 2nd biggest component party but with no official stand on this issue.

Don't waste our time by telling us what you feel, you should tell all of us what you or your party can or will do, then we will have more respect for MCA.

Vince said...

Dr Chua,

We are not that naive, doing either choice 1 or 2 will give the opportunity for BN to take over the State Gov without a re-election.
When the state assembly was dissolved, the MB post will be automatically vacant (so we do not see any reason why Nizar had to resign at all). Of course as everybody expect, PR team is preparing a full name list of candidate which they can trust and hold a bind to a possible new law that they must resign as MP if they jump ship (so no more Kataks).
Don't you agree this is the best option if BN really wants the Rakyat to choose and be diplomatic?

Mike said...

Go ahead with the legal appeal crap. Even a common person on the street also can see who is right and who is wrong.

Continue this legal battle is like digging a grave. The more one dig the deeper it is until he the grave digger cannot get out and will be bury alive in the next Tsunami.

Our short sighted leaders will win the battle but loss the war, big... real big

After 3 months or more than 100days of this PErak Coup De Tat drama, now only you felt that

'A fresh state election will be the best way to resolve this stalemate. Let the rakyat decides and once for all, we resolve this problem, which is not doing anybody any good.'

Will you be too slow?
Oh sorry, I just forgot this is the MCA's Culture of acting slow.

Just like the PriceWaterhouse Report on the PKFZ scandal, which also need to take such a long time and till now yet to show to the public!

Good Culture! Pls Keep it!

John said...

Soi Lek, it is the general view of the people both in Perak and the other states of Malaysia that fresh election in Perak be held to decide once and for all who should be the legitimate state government. The BN has been trying to hold on to the orchestrated power grab and fearful that fresh election would probably reduced them to obscurity in Perak. Remember, legitimate government is of the people, for the people and by the people. Let the people of Perak choose their representatives in the government.

SMKGP said...

yah..its great Dr chua Soi Lek..respect ur opinion..that's da true 'super duper senior' of MBBS malaya..tq

Mike said...

馬漢順指出,目前的僵局已使州政府及行政議員陷入動彈不得的地步。

他強調,解散州議會並不是解決問題的辦法,因為沒有人可以保證,州選舉解散後問題會不會重新回到原點。

The reason why they prefer not to have fresh re-election is bloody clear. Go and ask the Anty selling nasi lemak on the street.

Just remember these sort of leaders and let them know what you think in the next GE which is not too far away

Yang Bhg. DATO'SRI DR CHUA SOI LEK.
saya amat menyokong pandangan dato;sri terhadap masalah politik di negeri perak.pandangan saya Barisan Nasional guna taktik kotor untuk mendapatkan nubuh kerajaan negeri. sebagai ahli mca amat sakit hati ,kerana kecuali hanya Team B berani sunggguh bagi comment. manakala Team A (ong tee kiat) beliau sibuk tutup kes kes masalah pelabuhan kelang. kenapa beliau sibuk sangat tutup kes pelabuhan.> semua orang tahu... kerana beliau hanya PRESIDENT MCA 1 PENGGAL....

TpK said...

Come on lar Dr Chua....one case only and u said the judiciary is free from political interference? We the rakyat are not stupid!! Don't insult our intelligent.

Can't u see the bigger picture? Not to mention that VK Lingam said something about Justice Ramly in the recorded conversation. Is that the very same judge who granted Zambry the stay??...or...can u just check how remarkably efficient the court is when Zambry requested for the stay? and how painful it was for Nizar to get his appeal to be heard by the court? Any of these come to ur sense?

Gosh....I honestly think all BN leaders are still in the state of denial!! Wake up guys...!!!

越是不解散,人民是否就会,越憎恨国阵呢?

下届大选,会否因为这事件,而令国阵输得更惨呢?

除了解散,有什么更好的方法,可以平复民愤呢?

(如果只是在3名民联跳槽议员选区进行补选,这可行吗?)

問文 said...

人民对许月凤愤怒,比对国阵的愤怒来得还要利害很多倍。

如果许月凤继续的亲国阵,人民就会一日比一日的憎恨国阵吧?

所谓众怒勿犯,有什么好办法可以解决呢?

問文 said...

除了要不要解散州会,人民应该还很关注另外一件事吧,就是关于许月凤的胡椒粉喷雾剂事件。

不知蔡前辈,对许月凤在507州会上喷胡椒粉事件,又有什么看法呢?

如果许月凤没有受到任何法律对付,人民会否认定是国阵在维护她呢?到时人民会不会对国阵有更深远的误会呢?

许月凤,会不会造就下届大选国阵和马华大败的关键人物呢?

马华是否真的要对人民好好交代,关于许月凤和国阵的关系呢?
