Anwar cry foul.... here
Disappointed but not surprising.. well.. yeah... the result would go no other way.. with the bench selected by the powers in BN themselves... how would one expect the judiciary to bite the hand that fed them?
BN would claim the courts have made them legal...
Well the charade is over but some glaring issues were raised... I found this article in Malaysiakini rather interesting.. here
|Decision on sultan's 'absolute power' unprecedented|
|Humayun Kabir | May 23, 09 3:39pm|
|The Court of Appeal judgment giving the sultan absolute power to dismiss the menteri besar is setting a dangerous precedent for a non-elected monarch to dismiss an elected head of state without going through the process of the state legislative assembly, said Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin’s lawyer.|
If only the political commentators take a little longer and think a little deeper, the answer to why the BN government is allowing all these to happen is pretty much a simple deduction.. would it not?
After all the years of the old man stifling the Monarchy... today, BN is turning to the very folks that they have been trying to silence to prop them up and keep them in power... why?
Why are they forcing the courts to go against the constitution?
To me, its a straight forward and simple purpose...
See, BN will lose power in the next GE.. or they would perceive they will.. but their warchest runs into billions of ringgit which is most capable of inducing some elected legislators to don the frog suit.... hence, in future, the monarchy and the courts will be called into action again to keep BN in power... how? Just as how they have done it in Perak. Believe me, it will be re-enacted in Malaysia after the 13GE if BN were to lose power and marginal enough for them to buy over some frogs and would go the same route of getting the King to declare that the PM have lost confidence of the majority and have reinstated the leader of Umno back to the seat of power. Just as the Perakians have lost their voice due to the monarchy and judiciary... Malaysians will lose their voice in the same manner a few years from today.
True, that the predecent set is a very dangerous one, but, BN will stop at nothing to keep themselves in power. Pakatan, I hope you all know what you have set yourselves up for in the next GE. Be prepared.... and Malaysians... it has to be ONE voice and by that I do not mean the 1Malaysia that our PM is proposing... its ONE Voice to tell BN.. ENOUGH!... NOW.. GET OUT! convincingly.
