As expected, the DAP who have the most to lose in this morning’s Federal Court judgement on Court of Appeal’s decision of over turning Kuala Lumpur High Court decision to grant the decision in favour of deposed DAP-puppet MB Nizar “Brother Yong” Jamaluddin’s suit for the Perak Menteri Besar’s seat, made disparaging remarks on the ruling. Ipoh Timur MP DAP-Emperor Lim Kit Siang describing the 5-0 unanimous decision by the Federal Court as “surprising”, made this uncouth remark to “It’s shameful for the Judiciary”.
That’s how KURANG AJAR, the Chinese Chauvinist DAP!
Lim should be cited for ‘contempt of court’ making such a despair remark on the Federal Court ruling. Not only he cannot respect the highest court decision, he even discredit the decision.
This proven the point that the power crazy DAP is only interested in assuming power, without respecting the law, Judiciary and the rights of others. Imagine how they will behave when they have power. Even as a minority, they are this KURANG AJAR towards the Judiciary, just because the decision is unanimous against their wishes.
DAP-puppet MB Nizar “Brother Yong” Jamaluddin cided the Federal Court decision “Will only make the monarchy have absolute power”. This should not be regarded anything less than seditious, suggesting that HRHs does not respect the Constitution and will abuse their power, despite Malaysian democracy is about ‘Constitutional Monarchy’.

PUTRAJAYA, Feb 9 — Toppled Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin said today’s Federal Court ruling that upheld Barisan Nasional (BN) as the rightful state government will lead to an “absolute monarchy.”
“If this decision goes on and becomes the law of the day, it will lead to an absolute monarchy,” Nizar said after the apex court declared Datuk Seri Zambry Abd Kadir the rightful mentri besar.
“That means the Ruler can now dismiss the prime minister or the mentri besar at any time,” said the grim-faced PAS leader.
While Nizar accepted the court decision, he claimed the ruling had “neglected constitutional precedents” and ignored the wishes of the voters.
He slammed the BN government as an “illegitimate” one which had been supported by today’s decision. “It’s not right. It’s wrong. Everybody has a place — the judiciary, executive, sultan. Everybody has a place,” he stressed.

But Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail described the ruling as a “very clear judgment with very, very sound reasonings.”
“There’s no doubt about it. What it has done was to reaffirm the court decision that Datuk Zambry is the rightful mentri besar,” Abdul Gani said, referring to the Federal Court decision read by Chief Judge of Malaya Tan Sri Arifin Zakaria upholding the earlier Court of Appeal decision.
The Court of Appeal ruled last May 22 that Nizar had lost the confidence of the majority of the Perak assemblymen and must resign after failing to get the Perak Sultan to dissolve the state assembly and pave the way for fresh elections when three PR lawmakers turned independent in early February 2009.
Abdul Gani appeared incensed when a reporter asked him if today’s decision would lead to an “absolute monarchy in Perak” as suggested by Nizar.
“No! How can you make such a statement?” he retorted.
“Have you read your constitution? Carefully?” he pressed the reporter asking the question, who replied he had.
Abdul Gani was unsatisfied with the reply however, and called the man “a disgrace” for asking that question.The Pakatan supporters gather around Nizar as he explains the situation after leaving the courtroom. – Picture by Jack Ooi
“What we are known as is a constitutional monarchy system,” he added.
Lawyer Datuk Cecil Abraham, who acted for Zambry, later told reporters in court: “This decision is binding on the state government and the federal government.”
Zambry himself was absent in court and apparently attending a mentris besar and chief ministers’ meeting chaired by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
Meanwhile, other PR leaders shared Nizar’s disappointment over today’s ruling.
DAP veteran and Ipoh Timur MP Lim Kit Siang blasted the verdict as the “legalisation of BN’s coup d’etat” and said today is a “sad day for parliamentary democracy.”
Gopeng PKR MP and party vice-president Dr Lee Boon Chye, on the other hand, remained optimistic, saying that the verdict is “a temporary setback” for PR and said they “may lose Perak today but will win it back in the next general election.”
Nizar concurred, saying PR’s focus for now would be winning the silver state back in the next general election which is slated to take place within three years.
The ousted MB also said that their lawyers will look at the prospect of further action once the written judgment is obtained.
The fact is that HRH Paduka Seri Sultan Perak was acting in accordnce with the provisions of the Perak State Constitution. This is clear blatant contempt of court. The two should be cited and tried, in court even though they will never agree with the outcome whenever the result is not in their favour.
Even though DAP-puppet MB Nizar “Brother Yong” Jamaluddin is a PAS Exco member, this uncouth remark is not reflective of the PAS’s acceptance to the ruling. MB Kedah, who is also Kedah PAS Commissioner Dato’ Seri Azizan Razak accepted the decision.

Kedah MB Asks All To Accept Court Decision On Zambry As MB
ALOR SETAR, Feb 9 (Bernama) — Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak today called on all quarters to accept the decision of the Federal Court which declared Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir as the Menteri Besar of Perak.
Azizan, who is also state Pas commissioner, said supporters of the opposition coalition, especially in Perak, should not question the court’s decision and should accept it from the aspect of law.
“Never mind, that’s the workings of the court, we hope it is a just decision and I have nothing to comment as the court has done its work and Zambry has been declared as menteri besar by the court,” he said when contacted here.
Azizan said Kedah too was awaiting a court decision on the Kota Siputeh state assembly seat and the state hoped for a just decision again.
The seat is a centre of attraction pending a Court of Appeal decision on the status of the Jerlun Umno division chief, Datuk Abu Hassan Sarip, as to whether he was still the assemblyman for the area or to call for a by-election.
A panel of five judges led by Court of Appeal president Tan Sri Alauddin Mohd Sheriff unanimously ruled that the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah, had exercised his royal power to appoint Zambry to replace Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin from the DAP-PAS-PKR coalition after he was satisfied that the Mohammad Nizar had lost the majority vote of the state legislative assembly.
In KUALA LUMPUR, Opposition chief and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said he was not surprised by the decision.
He said what was important was to refer the matter to the “people’s court” for a decision as to who was qualified to lead the state of Perak.
Anwar said this to reporters when met at the Court Complex here where he is on trial for the alleged sodomy of his former aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan.
Asked about his advice to opposition supporters, especially in Perak, he said he called on them to use their time to update their respective party machinery and explain current issues to the people.
In PENANG, the DAP expressed deep disappointment over the decision.
Its secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said the Federal Court decision was contrary to the basic democratic principle that a government must be elected by the people.
“Any government that does not derive any directly elected mandate, not only violates the democratic principle of the people’s power but also questions the legitimacy of a people-centric government of the people, by the people and for the people,” he said in a statement.
He said the party reiterated its call to dissolve the Perak State Assembly and return power to the people by holding fresh elections.
That is ‘fairness’, Pakatan Rakyat Primates style. These remarks reflective of DAP’s ‘communist terrorist’ nature, who never fails to disrespect other peoples’ rights and do their best, even forcefully to remain in power.
The DAP leaders seems to argue that ‘democracy is dead’ for this ruling. They must remember that the rakyat voted for the 28 Perak ADUNs who are still Pakatan Rakyat. There are the other 28 ADUNs who the rakyat voted for Barisan Nasional. The fact that the 3 ADUNs who decided to abandon their parties in favour to be independent representatives does not mean ‘democracy is dead’. The rakyat voted these three candidates into the State Assembly, regardless what their party is.
Prior to these three abandoning their parties, it was Pakatan Rakyat who tried to ‘buy’ 31 BN MPs into supporting them, as part of the Power-abuse-convict Anwar “Mat King Leather” Ibrahim ‘grand plan’ of taking over of the Federal Government by 16 September 2008. Had this plan went through, would DAP made the same statement as Lim Guan Eng made in Penang?
