Favoritism practised in Malaysian Appeal Court

Bias was clearly felt on how Court of Appeal handles application filing of "request to stay" by Zambie and the "request to put aside stay" by Nizar on high court declaration that Nizar was in all material time a rightful Menteri Besar of Perak state.

The decision of Court of Appeal to hear Zambie's appeal and grant the stay by just one single judge took less than 3 hours upon filing, while it sets a date to hear Nizar's requet 5 days later .

To avoid spinning out episodes of injustice from parties of judiciary, administrative, and royalty , it is best to return the right to choose back to the people in Perak - dissolve the state assembly for a fresh election.

So, what is your take on this?

"Zambry’s lawyers had yesterday filed his appeal together with a request to stay the High Court ruling at about 9.30am.
They succeeded in getting a hearing with Court of Appeal judge Datuk Ramly Ali just two hours later."
- except from TheMalaysianInsider news article Appeal court to hear Nizar’s application only on May 18 .

"Understand Nizar's appln may be fixed Monday, 18th. Five days while Zambry can get his appln heard in less than 3 hours. "Performance Now"
Two hours, still waiting. Yesterday, Ap Ct super-fast in Zambry's appln. Why Ac Ct snail pace in Nizar's appln? Nation & world watching." - except from limkitsiang twitting live on progress
