The Liar will brief Council of Rulers about Perak - Malaysiakini

PETALING JAYA: The prime minister will brief the Council of Rulers on the political development in Perak at its next meeting

Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will brief the Council of Rulers on the political development in Perak at its next meeting.

He said it was up to the Council of Rulers to deliberate and make a decision on the matter.

On calls from quarters in Umno for the Council of Rulers to convene a special meeting to discuss what they deemed as an a disrespect by the Opposition against the Malay Rulers following the situation in Perak, Abdullah said the Council of Rulers met once every three months.

“I will also be present and possibly will brief the meeting on what has happened and the reasons.

“Any view or decision on the matter will be up to the rulers. I am only responsible for providing information on what has happened,” he said after launching the Hutan Kita - Kiara Our Forest programme at Taman Bukit Kiara in Taman Tun Dr Ismail on Sunday.

On the Perak State Assembly Speaker, he said the Government had yet to decide on who would become the new Speaker.

On the position of Pakatan Rakyat’s Tronoh assemblyman V. Sivakumar who has maintained he is still the Speaker as he was voted Speaker through the state assembly and could only be relieved the same way, Abdullah said: “There will be approaches that we will use to replace the Speaker later.”
