“I’m not going to rely on the court’s decision. It is only a legal process, the solution is to give the people the right to choose a new government,” said Nizar to reporters outside the courtroom yesterday.
The Court of Appeal is expected to give its verdict today and it could go either way.However, Nizar has already made up his mind not to take heed by saying he is not going to rely on the court's decision but would push for dissolution.From what I know not respecting court's decision would be contempt of court.
Assuming the judgement is in his favour than the Sultan may ask him to reconvene the state assembly to establish whether there is a deadlock.If so, than a dissolution is imperative and I am sure the Sultan will grant it to him.
It is also imperative that he would not play dirty like he did before, hit below the belt by suspending BN assemblymen.
In the meantime, there seems to be a lot of unhealthy lawmakers in Pakatan. This is the second death over a short period. Manek Urai assemblyman Ismail Yaacob died after a long illness. The irony is PAS suggesting to UMNO not to contest the seat, maybe, because of fear of losing in their very own heartland.By now the Malays might have a change of heart.PAS is the weakest link in the coalition.Losing their grip on political power may not be the comeuppance they expected.
They are not the same.Penanti was a game Anwar wish to play with Najib.Malek Urai is a dead man seat that fell vacant. Any seat that fell vacant due to death of elected representative should be contested irrespective of whether the BN can win or not.BN/UMNO should only refuse to contest those engineered resignation.Najib was right to make that decision.
Let Anwar and Pakatan 'siok sendiri'.
