The real deal: Perak Mentri Besar Nizar Jamaluddin below the Democracy Tree
So the High Court has ruled that Nizar is the rightful MB and Zambry and his exco members are to vacate their posts with immediate effect.
Justice Abdul Aziz Abd Rahim ruled that a Mentri Besar can only be dismissed by a vote of no confidence.
This is a brave verdict by a courageous judge.
So where does this leave the Perak State Assembly, which now has “two Speakers”?
In my mind, as in the minds of most right-thinking Malaysians, the only way out of this mess is to dissolve the assembly.
Unless the BN wants to prolong the political mess by appealing the decision. But then, on 23 March, the Federal Court had already ruled that the case should be heard by the High Court.
God is great. Does Zambry now hold the record for “Mentri Besar” with the shortest reign? No, not even that, as he was never the Mentri Besar yang sah to begin with – as the High Court has just ruled and as most Malaysians already knew right from the start.
