Anwar calls for fresh elections in Perak


We welcome the decision of the Kuala Lumpur High Court to declare Dato’ Seri Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin as the rightful Perak Menteri Besar. He should be reinstated immediately.

The High Court’s decision is a triumph of the Rule of law and affirms that the Constitution is the highest law of the land. Its ruling reasserts Constitutional provisions for the separation of powers and a delineation of the jurisdiction of the executive, legislature and the judiciary. Given this confirmation of the legitimacy of the Pakatan Rakyat government in Perak we urge that the resolutions passed by Perak State Assembly convened under the tree in Ipoh on 3rd March 2009 be respected.

After the dark and sinister events that transpired on 7th May in Perak the restoration of justice and of the principles of democracy is long overdue. For three months the people of Perak have endured the unprecedented abuse of power by the BN while the institutions of the state, the police and the mainstream media have conspired to confer legitimacy upon the sham BN administration.

We reiterate our call for the Assembly to be dissolved immediately and for the people of Perak to renew their mandate for their government at the ballot-box.

Leader of Opposition
