The general feeling of the people is that the Sultan of Perak, was hasty in his decision, and ousted a legitimate government, voted by the people. The way it was done arouses the suspicion that a new government should take over, was apparently decided by Najib and the Sultan became a victim and a perpetrator of a diabolical plan. The people are annoyed at the Sultan as about 88 percent indicated their displeasure, but Najib hides behind the Sultan by saying the royalty decided.
The Sultan is human and fraught to make mistakes. The only set back is one has got to go to court to prove whether the Sultan was right or not, and if it should happen, it will take ages for the verdict and meanwhile an illegal government will be ruling Perak.

From the various protests and huge outcry over what many have called an undemocratic ousting of a legitimate state government, it would be safe to assume that a majority of Malaysians are unhappy over what has been going on in Perak.
A survey conducted by Malaysiakini saw an overwhelming majority of readers disagreeing with Sultan Azlan Shah’s decision in the transfer of power in the silver state.
A total of 34,617 out of 39,411 readers, or 87.8 percent said they were against the sultan’s decision in the four-day survey which ended yesterday.
Last Thursday, the sultan rejected the Pakatan Rakyat state government’s request to dissolve the state assembly in view of defections by several of its state representatives.
The sultan, a former lord president, also asked Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin to resign as menteri besar, which the latter refused.
However, 3,862 (9.8 percent) survey respondents said they agreed with the sultan’s decision while 932 readers (2.4 percent) answered “Don’t know”.
