Perak Crisis Latest Updates – MalaysiaKini Live Report

5.50pm: Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim accused BN of trying to form Perak government ‘by hook or by crook’.

“We are pushing for a dissolution of the state assembly and fresh elections in the state. We must go back to the people and get a fresh mandate,” he told AFP.

“The BN are trying to form the state government by hook or by crook – more by crook.”

5.35pm: Mohd Nizar left the palace after meeting the sultan. He briefly told reporters that he had informed the sultan of his request for dissolution.

“It is now up to Tuanku (his highness),” he said with a smile. The meeting last almost two hours.

5.08pm: ‘PERAK GOVERNMENT FALLS’. Najib said at his press conference that the Barisan Nasional has the support of the four former Pakatan Perak assemblypersons – three will be “BN-friendly” Independents, while Nasarudin will rejoin Umno.

Najib will meet the Perak Sultan as soon as possible. He said it is up to the sultan to decide on Nizar’s request for dissolution of the assembly.

“All three state representatives – Jamaluddin, Osman and Hee – have submitted resignation letters to their former parties and have informed the sultan of their resignation.

“They have also given BN the mandate to select a new menteri besar for Perak,” he said.

Nasarudin has denied the claim that he had been abducted. 

Najib added that under Article 16(6) of the Perak constitution, if the menteri besar loses the confidence of the assembly members, he is required to resign, together with all the exco members under him. 

However the final decision now hinges on the Sultan of Perak – if he accedes to a Pakatan request for dissolution or allows BN to form the new government. Read more here

  1. Dear JG,

    KARMA REVISITED.

    The events unfolding in Perak brings back memory back when the PBS government were about to fall. Anwar was in the cabinet back then. Hope this will jog back his memory a bit.

  2. Dear JG,

    KARMA REVISITED.

    The series of events unfolding in Perak brings back memory to the year when the PBS Goverment were about to fall. I believe Anwar was in the cabinet back then. Hope this will jog back his memory a bit.

      Dear PK,

      Now I agree with you! I also agree with Ku Li about how the reverse takeover was done. After seeing this, the Rakyat will definitely overthrow the BN on the 13th election because it was tastelessly done.

      I wonder what the Sultan of Perak was thinking when he made up his mind. I’ll be checking out Malaysia Today to find out what HE has got to say…

      You still on leave?

  3. Dear Jg,

    Well everything is out in the open now. Tastelessly done as you have said. I agree with you and hope the rakyat will send them to the twilight zone.

    I am no longer on leave. Can’t afford to have a long one.

  4. Good write up, I will save this post in my Clipmarks account. Have a good evening.
