The UMNO-led Barisan Nasional federal government fully knows that if the Emergency State Assembly sitting were held, their position would be detrimental since the sitting would resolve that the recent appointment of the 'dubious' Mentri Besar and his six Exco members from the Barisan Nasional would be illegal and their suspension upheld while confirm that PR Mentri Besar and his Exco members are the only legitimate State officials. The sitting would also resolve a SNAP STATE ELECTION to be made so that new lawmakers could be elected to hold office, which if held would mean disastrous for the Barisan Nasional coalition.
The Emergency State Assembly sitting commenced at 10.13am with the usual prayers and it was reported that Perak State Speaker V Sivakumar at 10.18am in full Speaker's robe chaired the sitting while about 300 people witness the Assembly sitting nearby.
The resolutions resolved were with ' setuju' (agree):
First : The first motion to express confidence on Datuk Seri Ir Nizar as the Perak Mentri Besar was tabled and passed;
Second: The second motion to dissolve the State Assembly was also mooted, debated and passed unanimously;
Third: The third motion was to adopt the decision of the Rights and Privileges Committee headed by Sivakumar to suspend Datuk Zambry and his six exco members, was tabled and passed.
At 10.30am, the speaker has adjourned the historic State Assembly meeting while Speaker Sivakumar will now have to present the motions to the Sultan of Perak for further action.
It seems now that the historical Emergency sitting of the Perak State Assembly had been convened lawfully, the UMNO-led Barisan Nasional federal government will face an uphill task of nullifying although it would use all its 'dubious tactics' to see that it is done since what had transpired would be very disastrous to them.
