WHAT NEXT FOR ZAMBRY AND NIZAR?

Wow......Zambry is reinstate the Menteri Besar of Perak in double quick time. The Court of Appeal judge must have worked feverishly to grant a stay of the High Court judge declaration on Monday 11, that Nizar is the lawful Menteri Besar of Perak.

I am no lawyer to comment on the intracacies involved in Zambry's application to the Court of Appeal, that had granted him back the Menteri Besar post, but speaking as a layman, this case is what one would term as 'a comedy of error'.

I was informed about this new turn of event by one of my blog viewer via the sms. I initially thought that he was joking, and my reply to him was that, “I am fortunate not to be from Perak”. When I got to the office, I noticed one of the staff, a thoroughbred Perakian, looking remoseful. I asked him what is wrong? He replied, “What is the palace doing? Are they not concern with what is happening in Perak? Why have they not arbitrate the political crisis looming in Perak today, that is not benefitting the people of Perak?”. I did not answer him, but quietly walked away, fearing that he will shower me with more questions.

Obviously, the Zambry vs Nizar case will not be ending soon, since the matter is now in the hands of the court. I do not wish to preempt what would be the judgment on Nizar's appeal application to the Court of Appeal that will be decided on Tuesday 18th, 2009. But judging by the manner at which the Court of Appeal had decided on Zambry's application in double quick time, my honest guess is that Nizar has little chance of winning. I wish this is not true, because I believe, like many else do, that the only sensible and honourable solution to the Perak political impasse, would be to allow the people to decide through the ballot box. By this way, democracy is restored, to the satisfaction of not only Perakians, but to all Malaysians. Isn't this too much to ask?

It is quite apparent that the treatment accorded by the police to Zambry is quite different to that of Nizar. Just look at the picture of the smiling Zambry being escorted by a policemen to his office, as shown in the New Straits Time today. Compare this with the picture of Nizar at the gate of the State Secretariat building, and being disallowed into his office on Tuesday morning. Isn't this a shame, and I dread the day when the opposition wins back the control of the state.

Much has been said about the conduct of civil servants towards Nizar, that clearly favoured Zambry. As civil servants, they have to remain apolitical, and this clearly was not observed. Just look again at the manner in which the Speaker in his honourable robe, was dragged out of the State Assembly. Can any right thinking person say to me that the act was justified. I say it was certainly not justified, and only persons with an insane mind would do that.

My honest appeal to all assemblymen in Perak is to use more of their brains, and less of their brawns. Elected assemblymen are referred to as the Yang Berhormat, and let not their personal act shows otherwise.

The whole country is fed-up, not only Perkians, Dear Dato!

The stupid games that they are playing now, only a baby in her mummy's stomach will enjoy and believe.

Just arrogant and selfish zealots, hungry for power and mad for position & crazy for a post !

They think that the Rakyat is as BODOH and DUNGU as themselves.

It is enough, much has been said and done, the damage is unbearable and cannot be rectified beyond repair, the right word to be used!

So, WHAT if THE SULTAN HAS TO EAT HUMBLE PIES, NAJIB EATS ROTTEN PIES AND ZOMBIE EATS DIRTY PIES & NAZRIN DO NOT GET A PIE AT ALL !

AT LEAST THE DIGNITY OF THIS COUNTRY IS PRESERVED --- DON'T BE A SELFISH LOT...ADMIT THE WRONGS YOU HAVE ALL CAUSED AND MOVE ON.

THE COUNTRY WILL RESPECT YOU FOR BEING A TRUE GENTLEMEN AFTER THIS (IF THEY SO DECIDE)

OTHERWISE THE HISTORY BOOKS WON'T LET UP AND ALL YOUR DEEDS WILL BE RECORDED FOREVER AND EVER.

Let the people choose who they really want as their MB and leader, Najib you should be thankful, if this country voted for a new PM, you would be listed last for the JOB!

Dear Komando & Khamir,

You are not the only person to feel 'distressed' at what is happening to the Perak state. But politics in this country is such that, power is all that they want. I do not know how to make them see senses.

For Khamir. I think I know you because the name sounds familiar. My email address is arshadraji43@yahoo.com. I will be glad to receive an email from you. Meeting old friends is great.
