KUALA LUMPUR: Pakatan Rakyat will take legal action against the Sultan of Perak and Barisan Nasional if they persist in appointing a new BN mentri besar at Istana Iskandariah in Kuala Kangsar on Friday, DAP chairman Karpal Singh said.
He said Pakatan had no option but to take the action because the removal of Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Nizar Jamaluddin by Sultan Azlan Shah, pursuant to Article 16 (6) of the state constitution, was clearly ultra vires the provision of that article.
”In law, the decision of the Sultan of Perak can be questioned in a court of law. I call on the Sultan to cease and desist from appointing a new Barisan MB and executive council later this afternoon,” he told a news conference here on Friday.
Karpal Singh said that this action should in no way be constituted as a threat to the Sultan but a was firm reminder that the Ruler was required to act within the parameters and confines of the constitution of the state of Perak, which is the supreme law of the state. - Bernama
