In a show down with the BN appointed state government the Speaker of Perak State Assembly has issued a notice to all State Assemblypersons in Perak-bar the 7 BN `Excos’ suspended and 3 considered to have resigned, to hold an emergency seating to dissolve the State Assembly. With the 10 Assemblypersons barred from the Assembly the motion to dissolve the Assembly would command enough vote to be passed and this will throw a challenge to the Sultan who had earlier refused to dissolve the Assembly when requested by MB Nizar.
UPDATE: Observers should prepare for the eventuality of the dissolution of the Perak State Assembly -which would be a big job for observation! But that is a near possiblity now!
In an effort to block the Assembly the State Legal advisor has stopped the sending out of the notice-but this did not stop the notice from being sent by means outside the control of the legal adviser.
Earlier MB Nizar had surrendered the keys of the official residence but not his official car.
The BN MB Zambry had also deny that he is availing himself of British QC’s help to defend his MB position, in an attempt to fight off criticisms that he could not defend himself otherwise.
Meanwhile the by-election in Bukit Gantang is shaping up to be a fight for legitimacy between BN & PR.
