The Perak Crisis: Keep Focused on the Real Issues

On 11 May 2009, the Kuala Lumpur High Court ruled (per Dato’ Abdul Aziz J) that since there had been no formal vote of confidence on the floor of LA, Nizar remained the rightful MB of Perak. Zambry appealed. The Court of Appeal unanimously reversed the High Court decision but it was some time before the three judgments were released. Two of them, those of Dato’ Raus Sharif and Dato’ Ahmad Maarop JJCA were released towards the end of June while that of Dato’ Zainun Ali JCA was released in early July.

The three lengthy judgments come up to some 240 pages in all and a large number of issues were canvassed and discussed. Dr Kevin YL Tan SJD previously commented on the correctness of the High Court decision and having already discussed the contradictions that arose from the judgments of Raus and Maarop JJCA feels it is timely to revisit the most salient issues in this case.

The Perak Crisis – my rebuttal to Lord Lester’s opinion

Prologue “To adopt a literal approach would vest a certain level of absolute power in the Ruler where such power does not exist in the first place. Can we imagine a situation where the Ruler may decide mid-term to change an MB because he thinks that MB does not command the confidence of the majority […]

The LoyarBurok Book Review: “Perak: A State Of Crisis” – Sebuah Reviu Malas-Dah-Nak-Cakap

Sewaktu reviu ini ditulis, aku baru pulang dari perlawanan futsal antara LoyarBurok dan MyConsti. Sebagai seorang kaki bangku yang jujur, aku hanya hadir bagi menyatakan sokongan kepada teman-teman yang berhempas pulas mengejar bola nan sebijik, dan bersorak pada setiap kali bola warna oren itu melepasi gawang gol. Bila aku sebut gawang gol, maksud aku celah kaki Edmund Bon yang pakai seluar terbalik. Tapi itu cerita lain.
