High Court Decision – Smoke Screen or A New Battle Plan?

Posted in Uncategorized by malaysiasms on May 12, 2009

Malaysia Today

I’ve to admit I was rather surprised with the High Court decision that declared Nizar Jamaluddin as the rightful Perak Menteri Besar (Chief Minister) instead of ruling government’s choice, Zambry.

Equally surprising was the Zambry’s application for a stay pending appeal which was immediately rejected by the High Court. People especially from the PR (Pakatan Rakyat or People’s Alliance) coalition started the celebration as if the country has just won the FIFA cup. The victory was actually many times better than orgasm considering that the perception on the street was the judicial was long-dead, since the day former premier Mahathir chopped down the judiciary’s independence and made the judges at the mercy of the Executive pillar.

Make no mistake about it, PM Najib’s plan in capturing the Perak state was buggy as he was rushing to show the UMNO delegates what he can do in the blink of an eye in his final push for his successor, Abdullah Badawi, to throw in his towel. In the process he only managed to seduce the tainted trio to jump ship while it was freaking difficult to win over the Speaker Sivakumar. If only Najib could win the heart of Sivakumar the Perak’s political landscape may be different today. By the time Najib realized his mistake it was too late, nonetheless the assault for the Chief Minister post had to continue. His apprentice Zambry was hoping for a smooth sailing when the Perak Assembly opened last week but Speaker Sivakumar had proven to be a hard nut to crack so much so he basically chained himself to the Speaker’s chair without even the need to answer nature’s call *hats off to him*.
