It has been revealed that the 'thief BN Mentri Besar' Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir has instructed suspended indefinately Dewan Secretary Abdullah Antong Sabri to issue an official notice that the State Assembly will be convened on 7 May 2009, just six days before the compulsory six-month deadline to hold the Dewan sitting expires.
Dewan sittings are usually called by the Dewan Speaker and this current twist of events have created another political turmoil in the already problematic situation since the newly appointed Dewan Secretary Mohd Misbahul Munir Masduki was not contacted. The Federal Court had yesterday declared that Dewan Speaker V Sivakumar has no authority to suspend Datuk Dr Zambry and his 6 BN Exco members, although its clear that the decision of the Dewan Speaker cannot be challenge in any court of law. The Federal Court had created a 'dangerous' precidents and had 'raped' the State and Federal Constitution in order to please their 'masters' BN Federal government who had through the back-door taken control of Perak State using the Sultan of Perak when the existing Pakatan Rakyat Mentri Besar and his Exco members had not tendered their resignation. According to the Perak Constitution, the Sultan has no powers to demand a resignation of the Mentri Besar but its is only customary to 'obey' the wishes of the Sultan.
The only solution for this crisis would be to dissolve the State Assembly and call for fresh State elections but Barisan Nasional fears that it would be a tsunami for them to face a election in Perak as all their candidates are likely to lose all their seats.
