Nizar should go back to the assembly to show that he has the majority support of the members to continue as menteri besar and that Pakatan has control of the house.Then there would be no need for him to ask for dissolution.
A dissolution is not necessary unless there is a stalemate in the assembly.The Regent should ask Nizar to prove his claim that there exists a stalemate. The assembly must reconvene without any members being barred from attending it.
The sacking of the two assemblymen that crossed over to the BN was illegal as the pre-signed undated letter of resignation was considered illegal (a precedence in Sabah) and goes against Article 10 of the Federal Constitution.
The last say is still the Sultan.Dissolution may or may not be granted.
