Can't even stand to look at the DPM when shaking his hands ah?!?... I don't blame you!
The only place I found where Hee smiled in the picture is in (surprise! surprise!!) The bias BN Star newspaper!!
WHAT THE *&!@ is DOES "FRIENDLY INDEPENDENT "MEANS ANYWAY?!?
This is how Najib explained "Friendly Independent".... "(The three independents) would support BN in the state assembly. In the case where there is a need to vote on any issue in the state assembly, they would support us. Whatever we decide on they will support us and they will defend the BN state government."
HOW THE *!&@!*F@ is that "INDEPENDENT"?!?!?!
I take back what I said earlier....Syed Hamid is NOT the Biggest idiot in BN!
6. If the Sultan allows BN to take over the Perak govt... this would mean that the Perak govt will be run by 27 UMNO goons and 1 MCA slave! ...oh and probably 3 "unindependent"!!
This is a state that has almost half non-Malays!!! How is that representing the people?!?
SO WHAT WILL HAPPEN NOW?!?!
1. Najib would not want a by-election if he can avoid it. He cannot afford another lost as the upcoming PM!
2. If the courts charge and convict the 2 "independent" MPs, a by election may happen as well and this will give PKR a chance to grab the majority! BN will not want that situation and thus !
3. Najib will know that he cannot maintain a Perak govt with such a very lopsided composition of MPs. Thus he will need time to bribe/threaten/blackmail more non-Malay MPs to come over to justify his mandate!
4. Thus most probably something will come up and delay the Feb 10 corruption case against the 2 independent! (This will buy Najib some time to find more frogs!) or the charges will not stick or at the most, even if they may be convicted but the conviction will not be strong enough to force them to vacate their seats!
5. We don't know if the Sultan has vested interest in either side but it is probably a safe bet that the Sultan will probably prefer not to rule on this situation if he can avoid it. Thus he might be in favour to delay his judgement till Feb 10 too see what happens!
HOWEVER I JUST WANT TO NOTE THAT...
The Perak Sultan was formerly the lord president of the Supreme Court and wrote a book Constitutional Monarchy, Rule of Law and Good Governance in 2004.
In the book he wrote....
"Under normal circumstances, it is taken for granted that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong would not withhold his consent to a request for dissolution of parliament. His role is purely formal."
He also added that no sultan or agung had withheld consent to dissolve legislative body, except in Kelantan in 1977."
Unlike the Election Commission, lets just hope and pray that the Sultan will not go against his own writing!
