Bits and Pieces of Perak Chaos

"Constitutional monarchy: One single incident has turned one of Malaysia’s most beloved families into villains. Instead of dissolving the assembly at the urging of Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin, Sultan Azlan Shah of Perak did the unthinkable — he asked Nizar to resign and installed BN as the new state government. By doing so, he refused to recognise that it is the right of Perakians to decide who represents them. He said recently that the Malay Rulers were above politics. Sadly, many Malaysians do not view the constitutional monarchy as honest brokers today." - excerpt taken from The Malaysian Insider article Was it worth it?

The "appointment" of so called new speaker Ganesan from MIC and the passing of those motions are anything but valid. The sitting had never been started and any proposal of motion had not been accepted by the rightful Speaker V Sivakumar. Remember, the police force was preventing the elected ADUNs from attending March 3 sitting, and today is applying brute force to physically remove the rightful Speaker on UMNO's instruction. The police, together with state employees and Election Committee, are bending their bipartisan role to help UMNO complete their illegal acts in taking over the state government. They are the king makers and protect only one specific group.

While you may be following the shameful and disheartening event closely, you may want to revisit and refer. If you happened to have missed this latest barbaric and disgraceful episode of unconstitutional, unethical, and illegitimate power grab, these references can hopefully help you understand better how dark the country is today - 1BLACKMalaysia, indeed.

For the ardent supporters of MCA, Gerakan, and MIC, it is time to ask - why their parties can even be participating in and supporting such brutal and despicable acts?

The crisis in Perak must be resolved in a dignified and democracy method by going back to the bosses - that is the people of Perak state. So, election NOW!

As a consciencious citizen, hopefully you will recommend the readings to your friends, relatives, associates, and aquintances onshore or offshore. You can (and should) ask your folds (who traditionally support UMNO-BN) who have open minds and firm believers of true democracy to now judge the true character of UMNO-BN. Come next General Election, people of Malaysia who qualify to vote must not waste the opportunity to come together and take back the control of the country.

"Together we can bring back democracy!"
