Malaysiakini reported that umno/bn had the number of seats to form the new Perak Government.
By the latest count according to umno/bn najib, they have 31 state representatives to form the new Perak Government. How can that be.
Remember that the two state seats of Behrang and Changkat Jering had been declared vacant.
These two statements by Perak Speaker and Ngeh must also be taken into consideration by the Sultan when he decides whether to dissolve the state assembly or not and also to take note that he consented to the MB that allows these two seats to fall vacant.
Perak Speaker V Sivakumar is standing by his call that both Jamaluddin Mat Radzi and Osman Jailu are no longer members of the state assembly.
Insisting that the Election Commission (EC) has no jurisdiction to rule out by-elections for the Behrang and Changkat Jering seats, Sivakumar said that he had "absolute power" to decide on matters pertaining to the assembly.
Ngeh said that the Commission did not have the jurisdiction to inquire into the validity of the two resignation letters sent to Perak Legislative Assembly speaker V. Sivakumar on Sunday.
He said that under Article 113 of the Federal Constitution, the Commission was compelled to conduct elections and had no right second-guess the decision of the speaker.
“The law does not allow the Commission to conduct any inquiry, any dissatisfaction must be decided by the court.
If these two seats are vacant, umno/bn has 29 seats against PR 28 seats. najib is so sure that these two seats will not be vacant when he announced forming the new Perak State Government. Assuming that the Sultan agrees with him and let umno/bn rules the state, what happen if PR wins the court case against the EC decision and subsequently won both the seats. Then, PR will have 30 seats against umno/bn 29 seats, so another change of government?
The only solution now and to avoid the ding dong of government changing again later, is for the Sultan to dissolve the state assembly and call for fresh election.
