Dissolution of Perak Assembly Likely- Malaysian Insider

This is a follow up story to my earlier expose' of UMNO's interest to dissolve the Perak Assembly for fear of losing more support from the people. Malaysian Insider has ran a story on the "speculation"

BN leans towards fresh polls in Perak

KUALA LUMPUR, May 18 — The consensus that emerged today among Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders is that even if the court of appeal rules in its favour this Thursday, it will still ask the Sultan of Perak to dissolve the state assembly to pave the way for fresh polls.

The Malaysian Insider understands that the Perak constitutional crisis was a major item on the agenda at today’s supreme council meeting of the ruling coalition.

The rationale for such a move is that the ruling coalition stands to lose more credibility and that perception that it is the villain in the Perak power grab would only grow.

A number of BN leaders told The Malaysian Insider that the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) had been effective in painting BN as the usurpers of power.

However, a time frame for elections has not been decided.

The BN supreme council is likely to meet again after Thursday’s court decision.

Perak’s constitutional crisis is now before the court of appeal as Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir has filed an appeal against the High Court ruling that Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin is the rightful mentri besar.

With no clear end to the deadlock in sight, both BN and PR have appeared amenable to cooperating to find a solution to the impasse.

But PR, led by opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, is insisting that a fresh election must be part of the equation, a condition that BN has been reluctant to agree to.

At a press conference today, Datuk Seri Najib Razak had indicated that any talks with PR over the Perak crisis would only happen after Thursday’s court decision.

Even if the court of appeal decides in favour of Zambry, the ruling coalition is still stuck with the dilemma of having to rely on the backing of three defectors to remain in power.

Currently, both BN and PR have an equal number of seats in the state assembly, with the three BN-friendly independents tilting in its favour.

But two of the three assemblymen still face corruption charges, while the third, the former DAP lawmaker Hee Yit Foong, has been vilified to such an extent that she does not risk showing up at her own constituency.

The reason for BN’s softening position is also likely due to a growing feeling among some of its leaders that it may want to cut its losses or risk having the anti-BN feeling grow further.

Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad recently suggested that it was a foregone conclusion that BN would lose fresh polls.

Some BN lawmakers in Perak are also said to be keen on convening an emergency sitting of the state assembly to finally gauge once and for all the support it needs to legitimately run the state government.

But there is a growing consensus that such an administration will continue to be beset with controversy and legal challenges from PR.

  1. I really hope that the Perak DUN will be dissolve!

    Kembalikan Hak Rakyat!
    Bubarkan DUN Perak!


    Malaysian Come First


  2. May your prediction which was the earliest of all, become true.

    The 3+ 1 hoppers and the illegal MB & his regime must go. They have tarnished the image of the Country as has Najib who strategised it all! It will teach him not to copycat Anwar.

  3. I dont think so Perak Assembly will be dissolved in near future.You see UMNO were so scared of losing.Furthermore they dont need an election.They could function as government.The DUN can fucntion at gun point.With or without PR reps.

    Most likely they will delay the Appeal Court ruling indifinately..

  4. The 3 in ONE belakan pintu illegal MB and his mob should gracefully remove themselves as administrators of the State. They have no mandate from the Perakians and they were judged illegal by the High Court...what a shameless lot, only UMNO goons have the thick skin to remain in the State Secretariat.
    If they have any integrity and human decency left, they should ask the sultan to dissolve the State Assembly. Let Perakians decide who should rule the State.

  5. Much as I hope for it, it is still hard for me to see the reasons why Najis Razak will allow for the dissolution of the Perak DUN.

    More so now that Najis has chickened out of Penanti, lagi he will be scared to face the people in perak.

  6. Since BN have so much faith in the 3 defectors let them stand in their respective constituencies.

  7. WandererAUS: "...They have no mandate from the Perakians and they were judged illegal by the High Court...what a shameless lot, only UMNO goons have the thick skin to remain in the State Secretariat..."

    Correction, this mamak Zambry's illegal Perak Gomen consists of Umno & Be eNd parties, it shud read "only Be eNd goons have the thick skin to remain..."

  8. UMNO mesti berfikiran positif. Lagi lama Perak berada dalam keadaan krisis lagi akan menambah kemarahan rakyat kepada Najib. Ditangan Najib ada 'pisau' dan dia ada pengaruh untuk membubarkan DUN Perak.

    Kesan dari krisis ini akan memberi imej yang sangat buruk kepada Najib pada pilihanraya umum ke 13 nanti. Malah UMNO dan BN akan kalah lebih teruk dari pilihanraya yang lepas.

    BN dan UMNO sebenranya tidak rugi apa-apa kalau bubarkan DUN Perak kerana sebelum ini Perak memang kepunyaan PR. UMNO tidak hilang apa-apa kalaupun kalah di Perak.

    Yang lebih penting kepada UMNO ialah fikirkanlah nasib UMNO pada pilihanraya ke 13 nanti.

    Jangan jadi, nak untung secupak rugi segantang.

  9. Yeah..UMNO will disolve it right!!
    In another 2 years time!!!
    Dont hold your breathlaa!!

  10. Bila rakyat dah menyampah tu blah aje lah. Janganlah muka tersorong-sorong nak jadi MB haram. Mahkamah tinggi dah beri keputusan..tak puas hati lagi. Mengada-ngada betullah kau Zamri.

    Rakyat Perak dah meluat, meloya dan muntah mengikuti perkembangan politik Perak. Kalau BeeEnd tak turun sekarang pun PRU13 korang orang-orang BeeEnd akan ranap juga.

    Aku dah risik dari member-member dan kawan-kawan BeeEnd yang rapat dgn aku, mereka semua ni dah menyampah tengok muka si Zamri tu. Kau kena fahamlah Zamri.....

  11. Sekarang baru kita pasti betul akan akhlak orang UMNO. Bagi kawan kawan saya yang berada dalam UMNO , saya mohon maaf sekiranya saudara terasa hati, tetapi jika saudara tidak bersuara dalam parti saudara ban membiarkan segala yang batil berterusan, saudara sama sahaja dg mereka yang tidak berakhlak.
