A dramatic turn of event saw the BN appointed MB Dr Zambry and his 6 Exco members being suspended by the Perak State Assembly Speaker Sivakumar for 18 and 12 months respectively, following a hearing by a Privilege Committee. The hearing was triggered by complaint by a couple of Assemblypersons regarding the appointment of a new MB and Exco line-up while the existing one is still around. The PR appointed Privilege Committee was dominated by PR Assemblypersons (except 1 from UMNO) and thus was able to approve the penalty on BN appointed MB & Excos.
Other than this our observer inform us that 13 local NGOs are sending in a memo to the Perak Sultan calling for a dissolution of the State Assembly to facilitate a new election. Watch out for further report on this interesting development -if confirmed.
UPDATE: The handover is taking palce at 3.00pm. More reports to follow.
Meanwhile court action by PR MB Nizar continues in KL.
Anwar promised to disclose the dirty tactics and inducements used to cause defections from PR ranks, at coming Parliament seating. Watch out.
