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.
