WILL THE SULTAN OF PERAK DISSOLVE STATE ASSEMBLY ?

Many prominent personalities have expressed or are requesting the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah to immediately intervene and correct his 'error in judgement' and DISSOLVE THE STATE ASSEMBLY to avoid further embarrassment and ridicule.

It had been reported that former Finance Minister and UMNO President contender, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, a Kelantan Prince, has requested the Sultan of Perak to use his wisdom and to take into consideration the aspiration of the Perakians, to pave the way for a fresh State elections to elect new lawmakers to overcome the present political turmoil faced in Perak and not to play along with UMNO who fear a disastrous defeat if a State elections is called now.

Former UN Special Rapporteur on the Independence of Judges and Lawyers and former Bar Council President, Param Cumarasamy described the present predicament face in Perak could easily be resolved rather than depending on unwanted court decisions which is irrelevant in this situation since the Sultan of Perak's subjects are demanding a snap State elections to overcome the current impasse.

It seems clear that Sultan Azlan Shah has no other choice but to DISSOLVE THE STATE ASSEMBLY as demanded by his subjects and his continued delay may not be beneficial for him and the Constitutional Monarchs in Malaysia.
