Sivakumar will be pain in the ass for Zambry!

BN may have won the battle but the war is not over yet. DAP's V. Sivakumar is still the Speaker of the Perak state assembly. The Sultan may have the power to ' hire and fire' the Menteri Besar but the Sultan do not have the authority to remove the Speaker from his office.

Sivakumar can only vacate his office when he ceases to be a member of the Perak Legislative Assembly or if he is disqualified from holding other office, or resigns on his own accord. This pain in the ass will continue for Zambry and the gang, as the constitutional deadlock continues.

So with the Speaker's post still with Pakatan Rakyat, BN will find it hard to manoeuvre themselves in the assembly. Sivakumar had declared that assemblymen Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi, Osman Jailu and Hee Yit Foong had vacated their seats after he received their resignation letters. So the Speaker can bar this former Pakatan Rakyat frogs from the assembly, which will effectively reduce BN's majority in the House.

When the Sultan chose Zambry as the new MB, did he consider all the problems that can crop up later on? Hopefully the Sultan realised his mistake and dissolve the assembly.

After all, Kings and Sultans are humans too, like you and me. Humans are prone to mistakes and make errors of judgment. Only God is infallible.

Yes brotehr Siva,
Fight it on. Let's show them who's the winner here. The rakyat or the selected few?

Through this Siva, we hope the Sultan will eventually agree for the dissolve and call for another fresh mandate from the people.After all this is democracy.. from the people to the people.
