Perak Speaker calls for emergency sitting of state assembly on Mar 3

Perak assembly Speaker V Sivakumar has called for an emergency sitting on Mar 3 to vote on two motions related to the worsening political and constitutional standoff in the state.

Invoking Standing Order 8 and 11 to call for the emergency session, Sivakumar did not detail the two motions as yet.

However, he has instructed that notices be sent to all state representatives to attend except for the seven assemblymen suspended on Feb 18 for contempt of the Committee of Special Privileges.

As chair of the privileges committee, Sivakumar had barred BN Mentri Besar Zambry Kadir and six executive councillors from attending sittings of the assembly.

Three former Pakatan Rakyat assemblymen who quit their party to become BN- friendly Independents are also still suspended pending the outcome of a legal suit filed against them.

Pakatan Menteri Besar Nizar Jamaluddin has recently said his coalition plans to table a vote of confidence in him.
