Zambry denies he is 'mentri besar of the court'

IPOH, May 25 - Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir today denied he was "the chief minister of the court" who did not have the support of the Perak people, as claimed by Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat.

Taking a swipe at the PAS spiritual leader's remark on Saturday, that menteris besar were holding the post due to the people's votes and not by way of court decisions, Zambry said Nik Aziz should instead reserve the remark for Perak PAS Deputy Commissioner Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin.

Zambry said it was Mohammad Nizar who initiated the court action to seek a declaration that he was the rightful menteri besar of Perak.

"I respect him (Nik Aziz) as a person and I hope he can correct some of his views," he told reporters after meeting two English Channel swimmers Zahra Masoumah Abdul Halim, 18, and brother Salman Ali Shariati, 12, at his office here today.

The Kuala Lumpur High Court on May 11 ruled that Mohammad Nizar was the rightful menteri besar of Perak but this was overturned by a three-man bench of the Court of Appeal on Friday. The Court of Appeal declared Zambry to be the rightful menteri besar.

Zambry said it was unlikely that the state government would seek the consent of the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah, to convene an emergency session of the assembly as a way out of the state's political conundrum.

"We are guided by what has been decided by the court... let the law takes its course and we hope that things would go on as usual," he said.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the BN was open to the possibility of convening the session as an option to end the crisis.

Zambry also announced that the Perak government would contribute RM30,000 in cash to the English Channel attempt by the two swimmers in July.

The swimmers' father Abdul Halim Abdul Manaf, 49, a Universiti Teknologi Mara lecturer, predicted that the 38km swim across the chilly channel from Dover, England, to Calais, France, would take about 14 hours.- Bernama

In the Land of Boleh a usurper can be laundered through the Courts and made legal tender. How? Bathe him in Clorox, literally.

The Malay translation of such a character is MB Haram atau MB Palsu.

You are the real MB if and when the voters and Court of Public Opinion say so. But so far they are giving you the thumbs down.
