It will be a referendum in Perak. On 6 February 2009, Perak Umno launched a coup d’etat to topple the Perak state government which was elected by the people on 8 March 2008 general election last year.
After the legitimate state government was overthrown, a rebel state government was briefly established by Perak Umno to replace the former. After the Umno rebel state government came to power, the state legislative assembly was suspended from its proceedings with the help from the police and other security force. State assemblymen were barred from entering the state legislative building for fear of popular vote that will undermine the Umno rebel state government’s legitimacy.
Therefore, let us all show Umno how illegitimate and treason they are in Perak. Umno had recently killed democracy in Perak, denying the Perakians their rights, their choice of government and their right to speak up.
Let us all give our votes to Pakatan Rakyat candidate Datuk Seri Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin of PAS in the Bukit Gantang parliamentary by-election on this 7 April.
