IPOH, 30 April 2009: The Pakatan Rakyat (PR) in Perak today decided that all its assemblypersons would attend the state legislative assembly sitting on 7 May, said former Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin.
He said the decision was final although previously there had been speculation that the PR would boycott the assembly sitting.
“A boycott does not arise now, and we will give our full cooperation during the assembly sitting.
“I hope the sitting will follow all the procedures in accordance with the agenda, and we will abide by the rulings made by the speaker,” he told reporters after chairing a meeting with PR assemblypersons here.
Nizar also hoped that all the officials on duty at the assembly sitting would abide by the speaker’s rulings, and stressed that the PR assemblypersons would do the same.
Meanwhile, Speaker V Sivakumar, when asked on the bid to remove him from the post, said he was aware of the proposed motion but had not decided on what action to take.
He said that he would raise a number of issues before 7 May in his discussions with the police, the state secretary, and those involved in the sitting. — Bernama
