Media Statement BY DATO NGEH KOO HAM

Dato’ Seri Zambry Bin Abdul Kadir and BN elected representatives break the oath of office by colluding with the police and outsiders to forcibly take over the State Assembly and therefore must resign

All elected representatives of the Perak State Assembly took the oath of office to defend the independence of the State Assembly and the Perak State Constitution when they were first sworn in as State Assemblymen and women of the Perak State Assembly.

The need to have the separation of powers between the legislature and the executive is fundamental to our democratic system.

No police or army can be allowed to enter the sacred house of the legislature. Zambry and BN elected representatives had allowed the police to take over the Perak State Assembly for the sake of retaining their power instead of going back to the people for a fresh mandate.

The people must be vigilant and demand for the resignation of Dato’ Seri Zambry Bin Abdul Kadir and the BN elected representatives less we become a police state very soon. The people must also demand that the State Assembly be dissolved so that the rights to chose the State Government be reverted back to the people to solve the present impasse.

The State Secretary Dato’ Dr Abdul Rahman Bin Hashim is also involved in the scheme to take over the State Assembly by force by allowing the police to enter the State Secretariat  Building which house the State Assembly.

The take over of the State Assembly by force was clearly preplanned as the police personnel came from Bukit Aman, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Kedah, Kelantan and Kuantan.

The independence of the Perak State Assembly is totally lost when we allow the police, a Federal department to take control of the Assembly by force.
