I met up with Datuk Husam Musa, the Vice President of PAS. I was accompanied by YB Chua Tee Yong, the MP of Labis and Loh Seng Kok, the Central Committee of MCA. The main issue discussed was about the current political situation in Perak and also about other national issues.
In the discussion, both of us agreed that protracted politicking in Perak issue will not do anybody any good, especially the rakyat. I conveyed to Husam that, if we practice democracy, then if the court decides that Nizar is the rightful Menteri Besar of Perak, then he should convene an emergency state assembly to see whether he enjoys the support of the majority of the state assemblyman. If he fails to command the majority of the state assemblyman, then he should seek an audience with the Sultan to:
1) Resign as the MB and let the party who enjoys the support of the majority of state assemblyman to be the MB or;
2) Dissolve the assembly and call for fresh election with the consent of the Sultan.
However, I pointed out that any party PR or BN forming the state government will not be a stable government, and that if this continues, it will affect not only Perak, but also the whole nation. I also told him maybe at some point in time, there is a need for fresh state election. Meanwhile, there should be some form of cooperation between PR and BN in order to resolve this stalemate.
Beside the Perak issue, we also discussed in general about the political situation in the country. We agree that there is too much politicking presently. The rakyat are tired of politicians. The time has come that we should move forward for the good of the nation and the rakyat. Since Husam and me agreed that some of the sensitive issues we discussed are off the record, then I shall honour the undertaking given.
