KOTA BARU, 5 Feb 2009: Kelantan Menteri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat respects the decision of the Sultan of Perak not to dissolve the state legislative assembly.
Nik Aziz also said the Sultan’s decision to direct Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Muhammad Nizar Jamaluddin to resign should be respected as the Ruler has the right and power to do so.
However, he said what needed to be looked into and questioned was what led to the Sultan’s decision.
“I don’t question the decision of the Sultan of Perak in not consenting to the dissolution of the state assembly as it is the Sultan’s right.
“It’s just that we (Pakatan Rakyat) must question and study why the Perak assemblypersons defected and caused the political situation in Perak to become chaotic.
“There must be something that’s not right, and planned by certain quarters,” he said when met by Bernama at his residence in Kampung Pulau Melaka, near here today.
