MP Can Now Take The Dewan Speaker To Court !

umno, after replacing Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin as Perak MB, are going after Speaker V Sivakumar, ignoring the facts that they might lose in the Bukit Gantang, Bukit Selambau by-elections.
The Perak crisis has created a scene where every single rule of law is thrown into the dustbin. Any actions taken by umno/bn in the Perak crisis will reflect back to the Dewan and other States. Should they win the case by taking the Speaker to court for whatever reason than I am encouraging the MPs to take legal action against the Dewan Speaker for any reason, such as, being bias in his decision, suspension of MPs or even abusing his power.

(The Malaysian Insider) - Lawyers representing Perak mentri besar Datuk Dr Zambry Kadir and his executive council will file for an injunction this afternoon at the High Court in Ipoh in an attempt to lift the suspension orders preventing them from attending the state assembly.

So can any MP in the Dewan file for an injunction should they receive any suspension orders from the Dewan Speaker?

The legal action is unprecedented because the courts are not usually allowed to review decisions of the legislature and do not usually have jurisdiction over proceedings of the assembly because of the doctrine of separation of powers.

Should this court proceeding happen in Perak, I am sure it can happen in the Dewan and other States as well.

If umno/bn want to start this game play, they must be able to accept it when it happens to them in any other States as well as the Dewan.
