Kurang Ajar: The Pakatan Rakyat (PR) will take legal action against the Sultan of Perak

The Pakatan Rakyat (PR) will take legal action against the Sultan of Perak and Barisan Nasional (BN) if they persist in appointing a new BN menteri besar, scheduled for 3pm today at Istana Iskandariah in Kuala Kangsar, DAP chairman Karpal Singh said.

He said the PR had no option but to take the action because the removal of Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Nizar Jamaluddin by Sultan Azlan Shah, purportedly pursuant to Article 16 (6) of the state constitution, was clearly ultra vires the provision of that article."In law, the decision of the Sultan of Perak can be questioned in a court of law.

I call on the sultan to cease and desist from appointing a new BN MB and executive council later this afternoon," he told a news conference here today.Karpal Singh said that this action should in no way be constituted as a threat to the sultan but a was firm reminder that the ruler was required to act within the parameters and confines of the constitution of the state of Perak, which is the supreme law of the state.

Persoalan : what if nizar remain as the MB and pr remains as a minority government, you think after pr take legal action against the Sultan, he will still want to see nizar? will Tuanku approve/endorse or sign anything that is brought up by nizar for Tuanku approval? i hope pr will stop acting like morons.just see what our statesman has to say about pr,which is very true. pr can do anything they like but not others.
