DPM Najib Abdul Razak has now declared that Perak Barisan Nasional has secured the majority of state seats to form a new Perak Government after three PKR assemblymen and a DAP assemblywoman have left their respective parties to join the BN.
The four wakil rakyat -- Nasarudin Hashim (PKR-Bota), Hee Yit Foong (DAP-Jelapang) and self-proclaimed Bebas reps Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi (Behrang) and Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu (Changkat Jering) -- had headed for the DPM's office in Putrajaya..
Looks like the situation in Perak is a bit haywire. A mess. And that's putting it mildly.
Perak Menteri Besar Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin, meanwhile, announced an immediate dissolution of the state assembly.
He told a press conference in Ipoh that he is seeking an audience with the Sultan of Perak to obtain his consent. (Bernama)
He had claimed that Nasaruddin was "taken" from his house in Ipoh by two BN assemblymen supposedly to meet Raja Muda Raja Dr Nazrin Shah in Kuala Lumpur earlier today.
And Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has accused BN of trying to form the (Perak) government 'by hook or by crook'.
".... more by crook", he told AFP. "We must go back to the people and get a fresh mandate," he said.
What lies ahead in Perak? So much uncertainty. And so much wrong, no matter where you're looking.
Well...that's one huge stage yonder. Quite comic(al). Except that no one's laughing.
