Report from The Malaysian Insider: The Federal Court’s ruling last week overturning a decision made by an elected state assembly speaker crossed the boundaries separating the powers between the judiciary and legislature and has churned up a new challenger.
Suspended Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo plans to sue Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia for his ruling last month barring him from taking part in Parliament.
The actual disastrous situation of the Perak State Assembly started only when umno took the Speaker to court and I can see that the separation of powers between the judiciary and legislature are going to cease with umno/najib ferment quest to hold power over the Perak Government by any means.
That is why I make a posting in March 16th to call Pakatan Rakyat to take the Dewan Rakyat Speaker to court for suspending Puchong member of parliament Gobind Singh for 12 months.
This is what I wrote;
The Dewan Speaker does not have the power and immunity to suspend MPs from any motion raised. I would not agree if we are still living in the seventies but now the constitution and the law are no longer in existence and shred to pieces by umno/bn. If the Perak speaker can be taken to court for whatever reasons, I see no reason why the Dewan Speaker cannot be taken to court.

My early call is that when both cases are heard at the same time the judges will have to be careful about their judgement and hence it may save Perak from the injustice perpetuated by umno/najib hidden hand on the court decision.
It may be a little too late to save Perak from najib's undemocratic, unethical, illegal and unconstitutional power grab in Perak but it will be a good testing case or rather it will be a confirmation that our judiciary are not serving justice but to serve umno/najib. My prediction of the outcome of this case will be that Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo, has no legal rights to sue the Dewan Rakyat Speaker and of course they will state all their legal terms irrespective whether it is inline with the judgement or not. They will just open and shut the case in favor of the speaker.
Well, expect najib to come out to claim that PR is politicking and not respecting the Dewan Rakyat speaker decision. Anything and everything that comes out from umno/najib is always the Malaysia Boleh style.
