Court ruling on Perak has far-reaching consequences

    Aliran is terribly disappointed with the Federal Court’s ruling that the Speaker of the Perak State Assembly does not have the authority to suspend Zambry and his fellow exco members.

    The ruling has far-reaching consequences for the democratic principle which respects the separation of powers of the Executive, the Legislature and the Judiciary.

    The ruling has destroyed the notion that the separation of powers will be protected and preserved according to the rule of law by the Judiciary.

    The Judiciary has once again failed the nation in upholding the rule of law in the interest of justice.
