Proud of Perak

I felt jubilant as Perak was taken over by opposition as this is the moment that we all have been waiting for. I am just happen to share the same sentiments with my fellow statesmen and countrymen. Makal sakthi to all, may Perak will live prosperously with it’s soon-to-be formed Pakatan Rakyat coalition! Here’s a snippet from The Star about the new formation of Perak government;

IPOH: The state DAP, PAS and PKR leaders will seek an audience with the Sultan of Perak Sultan Azlan Shah on Monday to propose the names of two possible candidates to be the next Mentri Besar.The meeting, set to take place at 4pm at Istana Kinta here, is expected to be attended by Perak DAP chief Ngeh Koo Ham, party secretary Nga Kor Ming, Perak PAS commissioner Ahmad Awang, party state election director Asmuni Awi, Perak PKR chairman Zulkifly Ibrahim and party election commissioner Ismail Yusop.<

Ahmad said the coalition had agreeably arrived at the names of two suitable candidates who could take on the post of Mentri Besar. He however declined to reveal who they were and which party they were from. “We have agreed on the principle that the candidate should be a Malay.

“In total, there are six Malay candidates from PAS and three from PKR who won seats. The names were selected based on who, of the nine, would be the best and most suitable to take on the responsibility,” he said. Speculations are rife that the first name offered up would be that of Perak PAS secretary Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin who clinched the Pasir Panjang state seat from MIC’s Datuk Dr S. Vasan at Saturday’s polls.

Mohammad Nizar however denied the rumours, saying that he would wait for the party leadership to inform him of any development. When contacted, Zulkifly quashed talk that there was a tussle between the three parties for the Mentri Besar’s seat. “It is just one seat. The best person will take the post. There is no argument between members of parties as to who should get it,” he said.

I am proud of you all!
