> Call off State Assembly sitting: Kit Siang

Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir should call off the Perak State Assembly meeting set for May 7 as it is improperly convened, DAP veteran Lim Kit Siang said today.

"Zambry should call off the State Assembly meeting as it is improperly convened against Najib's public stand that the Perak Assembly cannot meet until the court has ruled that BN is the legal government in Perak," said Lim, pointing out that the court has yet to decide on the matter.

"As the court has not made any decision that the BN is the legal government in Perak, the May 7 State Assembly should be called off until there is a judicial decision," he said.

Lim also condemned the sudden pressure that Zambry was placing on the Federal Court to come to a speedy decision in his favour.

"On 21 April, Zambry filed an urgent application to the Federal Court for a declaration that he is the lawful Mentri Besar, and he now expects such a declaration to be made by the Federal Court on April 28. For two and a half months, Zambry did not move the Federal Court for such a declaration," said Lim.

"Does Zambry think he belongs to a special category of persons who is privileged to short circuit the whole process of the administration of justice?" he asked.

"Even with such a Federal Court decision on Tuesday, Zambry can only properly convene his first State Assembly meeting with the requisite notice of 14 days to all State Assembly members- which means the earliest Zambry can convene a proper Perak State Assembly meeting will be May 13," said Lim - theSun.
