The creation of two speakers at the Perak State Assembly on 7.5.2009.
DAP National Deputy Chairman and MP for Kepong Dr Tan Seng Giaw calls on the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib to improve the image of the Government so that it will be in a better position to face the economic slowdown which is aggravated by the Influenza A H1N1 global outbreak, the increasing crimes and poverty.
Dr Tan looks at the creation of two speakers in the Perak State Assembly on 7.5.2009 , in addition to two Menteri Besars and two state governments.
People within and outside the country are watching the unfolding ofthe Perak saga since February this year. The appointment of Datuk R. Ganesan as another speaker, the forcible removal of V. Sivakumar from the Assembly and the police detention of over 60 people including Members of Parliament and State Assembly members highlighted the pandemonium. The saga continues.
The rule of laws must prevail. Once two menteri besars have been appointed, the doubling of things has been set in motion. Najib has led the usurpation of the state power in great haste, giving rise to the dilemma compounded by predicament.
Najib's image is further affected. This would not help him in the efforts to strenthen our capability to overcome the global economic depression and to fight social ills such as crimes and poverty.
One way of improving the image is to dissolve the Perak State Assembly and let the people decide in a fresh state election.
