My reading is The Regent of Perak Raja Nazrin Shah will agree this morning at 9am when he meets the rightful Menteri Besar of Perak Dato’ Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin for the dissolution of the Perak state legislative assembly and to pave the way for a fresh state election.
This will be the most honorable thing to do. Raja Nazrin’s dad, The Sultan of Perak has after all invited much criticism over his handling of the state’s constitution crisis. Raja Nazrin’s agreeing to the dissolution of the state assembly would mean that the recent decision by His Highness the Sultan was erred. But never mind, this is a great opportunity to right a wrong. Raja Nazrin the son, could be the right person to undo the damages of the father, and Nazrin’s wise decision to dissolve the state assembly could be a nice face-saving move for the Palace.
Only a political decision can resolve this impasse and this is the inevitable conclusion and therefore the people should be allowed to decide. The solution lies with the people. They are the ones to decide.
