Whatever the morality of leapfrogging is, in reality, leapfrogging whether good or bad is not against the law and is part of the democratic process whether we like it or not. Pakatan Supreme Leader Anwar Ibrahim is chief instigator in this leapfrogging business and Pakatan have never complained in fact welcome leapfrogs with wide open arms.
What is undemocratic is when Pakatan lost their tenuous 3 seats majority in Perak DUN, they immediately want a change to the rules of the game and wants to force a dissolution and another snap election. To further pervert the democratic process the former DAP Speaker illegally suspended Zambry and his 6 excos and declared the 3 leapfrog seats vacant to cancel the majority that BN now have.
Politics are for grown and matured man and woman, and the way I see it Pakatan style of politics belongs in the schoolyard complete with you are with me or be damned attitude. If Pakatan politicians wants to behave like school ruffians when faced with a legitimate political takeover by BN, then they have no business to be in politics. Do not stay in the kitchen if you cannot stand the heat.
In March 2008 elections the BN has 28 seats, DAP 18 seats, PKR 7 seats and PAS 6 seats. BN at that time asked for a dissolution and another snap election because there is no clear majority BUT the DYMM Sultan Perak in his wisdom refused BN's request and give confidence to the loose DAP,PAS and PKR parties the right to govern the state.
So, BN being a matured and gentleman coalition accepted the DYMM Sultan's command without having to "sembah derhaka" like what that insolent and stubborn Nizar is doing now when his Pakatan is in the clear minority.
I think the democratic process must be allowed to run through its course and that the BN with 31 seats now has clear majority be allowed without hindrance to administer the state of Perak.
The High Court ruling the other day has paved the way for BN to right a mistake of not calling for a DUN to move a motion of no confidence against Nizar and sack him as MB, clearly in a democratic process the minority must accede to the majority not pervert it by using a demented speaker to suspend nine(9) ADUNS on the BN side to give an unholy majority to the Pakatan in the DUN. In a democracy we cannot have a situation where tyranny of the minority is allowed to fester and destroy democratic rule in Malaysia.
I support that no snap elections should be allowed just to please the sore losers of the Pakatan pack, Nizar and his ADUNS has to back down and respect the majority wishes and a emergency DUN be convened ASAP to sack incendiary Nizar and his Pakatan Government and let the rights of the majority be uphold.
As a note there is an interesting insight from a blogger when he said that if the minority in Perak can ask and get consent for a dissolution of the DUN, then is it not possible that Anwar Ibrahim as opposition leader seek to see the DYMM Agung and say he has majority in 5 states and 82 MPs in parliament and try to convince the Agung to dissolve parliament because he thinks he can win a snap election if called now....just a scary thought. But then until this year, who in Malaysia would think that Nizar would sembah derhaka and refuse to resign even when the DYMM Sultan has appointed Zambry as MB, anything could happen nowadays.
