The only moral thing to do: Dissolve Perak State Assembly

Aliran is alarmed that the duly elected legitimate government in Perak is being toppled through immoral party hopping thus frustrating the will of the people.

These party hoppers do not represent themselves but they are the representatives of the people. In the last election, these individuals were not elected solely on their individual merit. But the votes were mainly cast for the Pakatan Rakyat in rejecting the BN.

If people had chosen to cast their votes on the merit and qualification of candidates, many of them would not have been elected. It is very clear the votes were meant for the party. These individuals have no right to now nullify the electoral process,

It would only be morally right that the state assembly be dissolved and fresh elections be held. Let the people decide who should form the government.

An alternative government should not be allowed to emerge through defections under such questionable and dubious circumstances without seeking a fresh mandate from the people in line with their aspirations.
