Zambry: We’ll let the law take its course first

IPOH: The Barisan Nasional-led Perak state government will let the judicial process take its course before deciding on whether to have an emergency state assembly sitting. - Zambry, The real Zombie!!!

Commenting on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s statement that an emergency sitting was an option to bring closure to the Perak dilemma, Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir said:

“Although there are provisions for it (but) as the judicial process is taking place now, lets allow that process to take its course.”

Speaking to reporters after attending a monthly gathering for civil servants at the State Secretariat building here Monday, Dr Zambry added that he would leave the matter open for the moment.

Asked whether he would use the option as suggested by the Prime Minister, Dr Zambry said:

“It is not a question of an option. It depends on what is decided by the court.”

On when the Assembly will convene, Dr Zambry said according to House rules, it would be another six months before the assembly reconvenes.

“As for the emergency sitting, as long as it is approved by the Ruler (we can do it),” he added.

On the planned hunger strike by Pakatan Rakyat on Tuesday to call for the dissolution of the Assembly, Dr Zambry said it showed that Pakatan would not let the state be peaceful.

“They will do whatever to show Perak is always not in peace (but) I believe in the end, the rakyat (people) will know who is the root cause of the state’s chaotic situation,” he added.

Dr Zambry also slammed Pakatan for practising double standards.

“When the court ruled in their favour, they said it’s the fairness of the judiciary system but when the Court of Appeals ruled against them, they painted a bad picture of the system,” he added.

Earlier in his speech, Dr Zambry reminded civil servants to serve the government of the day to the rakyat’s benefit.

“They should not lose focus from serving the people,” he said.
