Pakatan Rakyat should accept Sultan’s decision

SLIM RIVER, 5 Feb 2009: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said Pakatan Rakyat (PR) should accept the decision of the Perak Sultan for Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin and the state executive councillors to resign from their posts.

Abdullah believed the decision was made in accordance with the law.

“I believe that Sultan Azlan Shah had thoroughly considered the issue and the legal provisions before making the decision.

“Just accept it. When Pakatan Rakyat won Perak in the last general election, we (BN) could accept it,” he said after visiting Sime Darby’s groundwater project at the  Cluny-Bedford Estate in Batang Padang, near here, today.

Abdullah said: “We cannot go against the law and the parties concerned should not be politicking over the matter.

“This problem is happening while the other states are busy with efforts to create employment, ensure that projects are well implemented and to reduce the effects of the global economic crisis.”

Asked about the BN’s approach in getting the majority in the Perak state assembly to form a new state government, Abdullah said what was important was that it followed the laws, and to administer the state with full responsibility and to serve the people well.

The prime minister said among the criteria for a menteri besar was the ability to lead and serve the people well. — Bernama

    Badawi as usual is missing the point when he said, “Just accept it. When Pakatan Rakyat won Perak in the last general election, we (BN) could accept it.”

    Pakatan Rakyat won an election with a majority popular vote but BN “bought” over the three frogs.

    An elected government can only be sacked through a vote of no confidence in the Parliament or State Assembly. If BN had the support then they should call for an emergency DUN meeting and sack the government instead of going through the back door.

    BN may have won this war by buying over some tainted politicians.

    Decent rakyat all over Malaysia now could see another dimension of the DPM other than the baggage of tainted images (corruption, sex scandals, racism, etc.) he carries with him. It shows that he is a person who would deal with the devil as long as he gets what he wants.

    People of Perak will remember this black day when the ideals of democracy were snatched away from them. Come the next GE they will know who to vote for and that is a promise.
