Perak Crisis: UMNO Desperately Crawling to our British Colonial Masters' Lawyers for Help on our Constitutional Problem Instead of Facing the Voters

UMNO Turns to United Kingdom (UK) QC's Help


Khoo Kay Peng


It was reported in Malaysiakini that a senior constitutional lawyer left Kuala Lumpur yesterday for London to engage the services of a QC on behalf of Umno to advise the party on a host of questions that is roiling debate in the country.

Umno is seeking the opinion of a Queen’s Counsel (QC) on the constitutional issues on the takeover of Perak state government from Pakatan Rakyat

As a self-proclaimed MALAY nationalist party running to its ex-colonial master's country to seek for a legal advice on the state government legitimacy is both SHOCKING and SILLY.

This action shows no difference from feudal Malay rulers running over to seek the advice of British residents and advisers in the past.

The last person UMNO should ask for an advice is a Queen's Council. They should really go back to ask the people of Perak by calling for snap elections. This is the best way to show us their patriotism

I am sure we have enough legal brains in the country to handle the constitutional issues.

I thought both Najib Razak and Zambry said the takeover was constitutional and legal.

If they were so sure of their position why can't they trust a LOCAL constitutional lawyer to represent them?

'GRUNDNORM' is the answer.

Power derived from Pepole should go back to them, have by-elections is those defected assemblymen's constitutiencies - Nizar continues as MB until election, then convene an Assembly sitting to see whether there is majority.......
