BN Acted Within The Law In Perak MB Case: Najib

Labels: ,

SINGAPORE, May 22 (Bernama) -- Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the Court of Appeal ruling in Putrajaya Friday declaring Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir as the rightful menteri besar of Perak proved that the Barisan Nasional (BN) had acted within the law in the matter.

Expressing satisfaction and gratitude, Najib said the court decision also showed that the Sultan of Perak had also acted in accordance with the provisions of the Perak state constitution.

Najib, who is also BN chairman, disclosed this to Malaysian journalists when asked for his comments at a news conference held at the conclusion of his two-day visit to Singapore.

The Court of Appeal found that the High Court had wrongly ruled on May 11 that Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin was the rightful menteri besar of Perak, and set aside the decision.

Najib said: "The present government of Perak is legally the rightful one and can continue to exist, continue to administer Perak, and continue to serve the people of Perak."

Najib said that with the court's decision in BN's favour, the Perak government would implement its responsibility with commitment to enhance the people's trust in the coalition.
