Most Malaysians if not all are amazed at how fast the appeals court decided on the stay of execution of the Kuala Lumpur High Courts declaration yesterday. The High Courts declared on 11 May 2009 that Dato’ Seri Ir Mohd Nizar was the legitimate Chief Minister of Perak and asked Datuk Dr Zambry and his executive councilors to vacate their offices to allow Dato’ Seri Nizar and his executive councilors to return to their offices to continue on their works. The decision has once again put the faith and confident of Malaysian in the judiciary system.
While Dato’ Seri Nizar and his executive councilors were busy getting started with their day at theState Secretariat, Dato Dr Zambry and his team filed for a stay of execution with the Appeals Courts today (12 May 2009). Barely less than 4 hours the Appeals Courts allowed the stay of execution on the declarations of the High Courts at around 1 PM the same day.
Such speedy and efficient work by a public servant is commendable and should be imitated by all if it was genuine. I doubt so. Why? Why there are so many cases backlogged? Many of these cases had been dragging on for many years.
Whatever UMNO/BN does now cannot redeem the bad, indeed very bad image they have portrayed thus far. The whole nation, not only the people of Perak, are getting angrier, more disgusted, and more disappointed and will hate UMNO/BN for many ‘generations’.
Tun Dr Mahathir and Tengku Razaleigh who are UMNO members have spoken up. NGOs, various associations and guilds as well as religious groups also desire that the State Legislative Assembly be dissolved. Gerakan Central Executive member, Dr Hsu Dar Ren, also agreed that fresh elections are the best solution.
This is the only way to solve the long-standing crisis which is not beneficial to the Barisan National nor to Pakatan Rakyat. Businessmen are facing many uncertainties the investors cannot wait-time is money.
Therefore let us face the democratic process of elections and whoever wins should get down to work immediately to cushion the effects of the global economci slowdown and take immediate steps to overcome the influenza epidemic. Is this not the most noble thing to do? BN - do not be wise in your own eyes!
