The six-hour sitting, was finally adjourned sine die at 4.10pm.
The NST report.
It's a black day in Perak today when the Perak State Assembly began sitting.
Trouble began as soon as V. Sivakumar, Menteri Besar Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir, former MB Nizar Jamaluddin and the assemblymen took their seats in the august house.
Sivakumar who was still Speaker, attempted to kick Zambry and six Exco members and three independents out of the Dewan.
Here's the Star "Battleground Ipoh" account.
Pandemonium, chaos, whatever -- microphones switched off, sergeant-at-arms called to remove Zambry but they refused to do so -- and amid all that, four motions passed including one for the Speaker to be replaced and a new one appointed.
So, former Sungkai state assemblyman Datuk R. Ganesan of MIC is the new Speaker, replacing Sivakumar.
Because his microphone was the only one working (as reported in by the Press), he is in control and in charge.
Meanwhile, police nabbed several people including politicians, activitists and a blogger.
The latest on the court case of the crisis HERE.
Pakatan Rakyat wants to defer the sitting of the assembly so that the six-month deadline (from the last sitting in November) will lapse by May 13 (when the sitting adjourns) that will allow the Assembly to automatically be dissolved, paving the way for fresh elections to be called.
As for Barisan, it, of course, wants the sitting to proceed so that it can remain the government in power until the next general election.
