The current administration running the Perak state is called the Umno rebel state government. Despite Umno’s repeat of its legitimacy in the power seizure and its recognition by the Sultan of Perak, the people will not be easily fooled by such stature made by Umno.
It is a fact that the Perak state is currently run by a rebel state government led by Umno Perak with its lackeys MCA, Gerakan and PPP acting as mere office boys or just like ball keepers. The Sultan of Perak had made a mistake in recognizing the rebel state government and it might be due to the pressure put on him by Umno who authorized the federal security forces to surround the Kinta Palace where the Sultan resides. Therefore the Sultan did not fully commits the mistake. He was pressured into making the wrong decision.
The power seizure initiated by Umno in Perak happened when three state assemblymen from Pakatan Rakyat had decided to switch their support to Umno. Two of the three state assemblymen who are now facing charges on corruption and power abuse are believed to have made a deal with Umno and the federal government to have their charges dropped later after their defection.
When the defection of these three state assemblymen has been formalized, Umno together with them held the state assembly sitting in the Perak Umno headquarters chaired by Umno deputy president Najib Razak.
The situation of the state assembly sitting in the Perak Umno headquarters was the Speaker was not present to chair the meeting at all. Secondly, the state assembly sitting was held in the Perak Umno headquarters and not in the State Assembly Building as required. Third, the state assembly sitting in the Perak Umno headquarters was not attended by other state assemblymen from Pakatan Rakyat. Fourth, the state assembly sitting in the Perak Umno headquarters who passed a no-confidence vote against the Pakatan Rakyat state government in a press conference chaired by Najib was illegal.
Why the state assembly sitting was held in the Perak Umno headquarters and chaired by Najib. When Umno claimed that they already have the majority to form a new state government, they did not ask for the state assembly sitting to be convened in the State Assembly Building with the presence of the state assemblymen from Pakatan Rakyat in order to prove the stature of their majority and to put a no-confidence vote to dissolve the then state government in a lawful manner.
But instead these Umno state assemblymen cowardly held their state assembly sitting in the Perak Umno headquarters without the presence of the Speaker, other state assemblymen nor any official notice of requisition in order to formalize the sitting in a proper quorum.
Therefore, the state assembly sitting in the Perak Umno headquarters was totally illegal and so does the results of its proceedings. In this case, the new administration is also an illegal one called the rebel state government. It is a fact. Umno is still in a denial mode.
