Zambry the BN MB alleged that the defected Assemblywomen Hee Yit Fong had become such a hated figure in Perak that she faces `life threatening\’ dissent! What he didn’t clarified was whether it was threatening her political life -as Assemblywomen and Deputy Speaker, or her physical life. In any case he was speaking in the context of asking the Perakians to give Hee a chance to serve. It is significant that the BN MB didn’t say that asking the Perakians is best done by submitting the issue to a public vote-in an state wide election!
In any case there are good reasons for a state wide election -as supported by 66 NGOs, since the 3 are as good as `incapacited’ -an official reason for a running a by-election, according to our Constitution. Currently the 3 defected Assemblypersons have not been seen in public since their defection. Now: how can they serve their constituency under such condition? There should be rules governing such `incapacitated’ condition of elected reps-to include politicians who virtually and practically disappear from their constituency after election.
