BN to form Perak govt, no fresh polls
It's confirmed. There would be no fresh elections as demanded by the Pakatan Rakyat. The Sultan of Perak has not consented to the proposed polls, according to Bernama. The Perak MB and the state exco members have also been told to resign from their positions as preparations are being made for the new BN exco line up including a new MB to be sworn in soon. If Nizar fails to do so, his position would be considered as vacant. The political temperature in Perak is however getting hot. Anwar Ibrahim is meeting Nizar and a gathering would be held in protest against the collapse of the PR government. The IGP has issued a warning against the gathering while sources said the police have cancelled the leave of its top brass to maintain the security in the state.
