Nizar Is Perak MB

That's what the High Court ruled today.

The Court has declared Nizar Jamaluddin as the legitimate Menteri Besar of Perak.

Justice Abdul Aziz Abd Rahim said that a mentri besar can only be dismissed by a vote of no confidence, and he upheld the Stephen Kalong Ningkan ruling.

In his landmark ruling, he stated that a new Mentri Besar could not be appointed as the office had not been vacated.

The court said the fatal Barisan Nasional mistake was despite the majority of 31 against 28, the coalition failed to take a no-confidence vote against Nizar in the state assembly.

The Judge said once appointed as chief executive of the state, the Menteri Besar is only answerable to the state assembly.

The judge also said that the job of the Ruler or head of state was only to appoint a Menteri Besar and if he refuses to resign, he cannot be sacked or his position vacated.

Justice Aziz said Nizar had gone to meet the sultan on Feb 4 to seek a dissolution of the house to go back to the people.

Nizar is seeking an audience with the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah, to get the royal consent to dissolve the Perak Assembly and call for fresh state elections.

Before leaving for Ipoh, he is expected to attend a Pas ceramah tonight and explain the court ruling to supporters.

Nizar told the NST that once he reaches Ipoh at whatever time, he will hold a Pakatan Rakyat Exco meeting.

Menteri Besar Zambry Abdul Kadir said that he will respect the court decision "with an open heart and mind" and will vacate his Menteri Besar office at any time soon. Zambry was not present at the court this afternoon.

The BN Exco members will follow suit to also vacate their respective offices.

Following the High Court ruling, Zambry applied for a stay of execution but it was rejected.

Zambry called on all BN supporters and people in Perak to remain calm.

i've already wrote in your past post that MB nizar should be the one to win this case hands down or the court might be the really corrupted.

and seems like they used the same point as mine.

that just shows how much the rakyat knows of the court proceeding and the rule of law in malaysia that we are now not allowing anyone to fool us anymore.

miss Nuraina, you should write about the Hee, how she spins things of to protect herself including using "i'm being sexually harassed", a stunt i felt is degrading to the true cause of
those who fought for gender equality and protection of women. she just made me felt disgusted.
