Najib, the Sultan and UMNO, played a dirty scheme to get the Pakatan Rakyat government in Perak dismissed and brought in the UMNO controlled Barisan Nasional government. Today, Zambry, who for all intends and purpose is Menteri Besar II and six executive councillors have been suspended by the Speaker V.Sivakumar. 

So, PR rules again. What is Najib and Sultan going to do.

The best is, allow PR to dissolve the assembly and call for new elections to see what the people want. PR will win with an increased majority, and perhaps BN will be wiped out in Perak.

Perak MB, all 6 excos suspended

The Perak state assembly’s special privileges committee today suspended the state’s newly-minted menteri besar Zambry Abdul Kadir and all his six executive councillors. This means that Pakatan has 28 seats against Barisan Nasional’s 24, and even with the 3 fence sitters will have only 27.

Zambry was slapped with an 18-month suspension while the excos have been suspended for 12 months.
The latest development plunge Perak into another crisis following BN’s seizure of the state government two weeks ago.

Sivakumar, who is still Perak speaker as the BN government has yet to convene the state assembly to replace him with one of their own.

slim majority in perak update 040209By suspending seven of the BN’s 28 state assemblypersons, the numbers have again tilted back to the former Pakatan Rakyat government.

Should the state assembly be reconvened now, it is likely that the seven suspended representatives would not be allowed into assembly, allowing Pakatan to have an edge of 28 seats against BN’s 24. 

The suspension means that while BN can technically continue to rule, but it cannot convene a meeting of a state assembly for fear that Pakatan would move a vote of no confidence against the government.
