Nizar Is Rightful MB Of Perak, Rules KL High Court
In his ruling, 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.
He noted that the Perak State Legislative did not hold a vote of no confidence.
Nizar had filed for a judicial review on Feb 13, seeking a declaration that he is the rightful mentri besar of Perak and an injunction to bar Dr Zambry from discharging his duties as the mentri besar.
On March 6, Justice Lau Bee Lan had ruled that there were constitutional issues involving the interpretation of Article 16 (6) of the Perak Constitution and later referred four consitutional questions to the Federal Court for determination.
However, on March 23, the Federal Court ruled that the case of who the rightful mentri besar is should be heard by the High Court.
Meanwhile Zambry has applied for a stay of execution on the High Court's decision.
The rollercoaster ride goes on!
Now let us see what the Perak palace has to say. Is it going to play politics and come out bruising itself further or will it accept the court's decision and act accordingly? We'll know pretty soon.
