BN promises more intrigue in fight for Perak

IPOH, May 12 - By Syed Jaymal Zahiid | malaysianinsider

While a happy Datuk Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir calmly told his Pakatan Rakyat counterparts to respect the court's decision and leave the state government building immediately, his Barisan Nasional (BN) colleagues hinted at more intrigue.

At a press conference today, BN leaders suggested they had something up their sleeves in dealing with the political crisis in Perak.

"You'll see in a week," said former Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Tajol Rosli who was responding to queries by reporters on BN's next move now that the Court of Appeal have temporarily reinstated BN as the legitimate Perak government by granting a stay to Zambry.

Tajol was sitting next to Zambry at the press conference. He was among the many BN leaders who were also present.

Meanwhile, Zambry said he was happy and thanked god for the court of appeal's decision which puts Perak in yet another wearying state of political impasse.

He also said that Nizar should respect the court ruling and leave the state government building peacefully.

"Just as what we had done when the Kuala Lumpur High Court made its ruling, I expect and urge them to do the same.

"I hope they (PR) do not ignore this ruling just as what they did before," said a smiling Zambry.

He added that he and his executive counsillors had left their offices immediately after the KL High Court decided that Nizar was the legitimate MB so the same must be done by Nizar.

Zambry said today's court decision means that the suspension of the state secretary and the state's legal advisor made by the PR government last night is invalid.

"Their position stays due to the ruling and until the date of hearing for the appeal is set," he said.

When asked when will he return to the MB's office, Zambry refused to answer.

He said the question of when he would return to office was not important.
