Perak Speaker V Sivakumar has written to the Perak Sultan to request a postponement of the State Assembly proceedings scheduled for 7 May.
The letter was sent to the Istana Kinta office at 11.00am.
The request was being made because the position of the Menteri Besar is uncertain and still being decided by the courts, he said. Zambry’s and Nizar’s suits are being deliberated by the KL High Court.
Moreover, he was worrited there might be misunderstandings and confrontations that would be difficult to control. “In my opinion, both sides will be sharply criticising each other to defend their respective positions,” he said, in a posting on his blog today. “To preserve harmony and respect for the Dewan, I have applied to the Sultan to defer the proceedings for the time being.”
