Pakatan to file suit in KL - Malaysiakini

IPOH: Perak Pakatan Rakyat will file a legal suit to challenge the validity of Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir as Mentri Besar in Kuala Lumpur Thursday.

State DAP secretary Nga Kor Ming said Pakatan was worried about the impartiality of High Court judges in Ipoh if the case were to be filed here.

“All documents related to the suit are ready,” he said on Wednesday.

Pakatan is seeking a declaration that the swearing-in of Dr Zambry as mentri besar was illegal and wrong in the eyes of the law.

Under the Perak Constitution, unless there is a vote of no confidence against Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin in the state assembly, he would still be considered the mentri besar, Nga said.

He argued that any government formed without the approval of the assembly would be considered illegal.

Nga, who is also Pantai Remis assemblyman, also claimed that in this case, any agreements signed by the Barisan Nasional state government might be considered illegal as well.

It is not only agreements signed by the present state government which could be challenged on grounds that it was not legally nor constitutionally formed, all actions taken could similarly be challenged. Such uncertainties will almost certainly scare away potential investors.
