Perak State Assembly which convened today went without any problems with ousted Mentri Besar, Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin taking the Opposition seat while ousted Perak Speaker V. Sivakumar while wearing his ceremonial costume instead of the Speaker's robe and was seated in his allocated seat together with the other Pakatan representatives.

Before the Regent Raja Nazrin Shah delivered the royal address, a lively exchange took place inside the house between Pakatan and Barisan Nasional state assemblypersons.

Eight men dressed in sky-blue outfits were initially stationed next to state assembly secretary's chair and a few Pakatan representatives shooed away two security personnel standing near their bench, but were unable to do the same with the men in blue.

The proceedings began with the royal address, which did not make any reference to the Perak crisis.

Speaker V Ganesan then adjourned proceedings to 10am tomorrow.

Journalist were only allowed to the upper floors and could only hear what was allowed to be heard.

The police were on standby this morning and security was tight. But the road in front of the state secretariat building, where the state assembly is located had remained open.
