Nizar MB Perak Yang Sah

Nizar MB Perak yang sah

KUALA LUMPUR, 11 Mei (Hrkh) - Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur memutuskan Dato' Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin ialah Menteri Besar Perak yang sah.

Keputusan yang dinanti-nantikan dengan penuh debaran oleh seluruh rakyat Malaysia diumumkan Hakim Abdul Aziz Abd Rahim.

Menurut Abdul Aziz, Menteri Besar hanya boleh dipecat melalui undi tidak percaya di Dewan Undangan Negeri dan beliau merujuk keputusan mahkamah terhadap kes Dato' Stephen Kalong Ningkan.

Sementara itu permohonan peguam Zambry untuk menangguhkan keputusan tersebut bagi mengemukakan rayuan ditolak mahkamah.

Hakim Abdul Aziz dalam penghakiman yang dibacakan mulai jam 2.30 petang dan berakhir pada jam 2.50 petang tadi berpendapat, Sultan Perak sepatutnya menitahkan Dewan Undangan Negeri Perak bersidang bagi mengemukakan undi tidak percaya kepada Nizar selaku Menteri Besar.

Sambil merujuk kepada kes duluan (precedent) membabitkan Ketua Menteri Sarawak, Dato' Stephen Kalong Ningkan pada 1966, beliau berpendapat Menteri Besar baru tidak wajar dilantik selagi Menteri Besar sedia ada belum meletakkan jawatan.

Beliau juga berpuashati bahawa Nizar tidak pernah melepaskan jawatannya sebagai Menteri Besar Perak yang sah seperti didakwa para peguam Zambry.

Para peguam Nizar dalam penghujahan mereka sebelum ini menegaskan bahawa jika Nizar diisytiharkan sebagai Menteri Besar yang sah, beliau akan mendapatkan perkenan Sultan Perak untuk membubarkan Dun Perak bagi membolehkan pilihan raya negeri diadakan.

Pakatan Rakyat dan BN kini masing-masing mempunyai 28 kerusi di Dun Perak. Pada Pilihan Raya Umum ke-12 Mac 2008, PAS, DAP dan KeADILan yang kemudiannya membentuk Pakatan Rakyat memenangi 31 daripada 59 kerusi Dun Perak.

Bagaimanapun tiga Adun Pakatan Rakyat pada 4 Februari lalu telah mengisytiharkan diri sebagai calon Bebas dan menyokong BN selepas hilang secara misteri selama lima hari.

Nizar ketika ditemui pemberita berkata akan segera memohon menghadap Sultan Perak bagi memohon perkenan membubarkan Dun Perak dan membuka laluan kepada pilihan raya negeri bagi mendapatkan mandat baru rakyat. Nizar memfailkan kesnya 13 Februari lalu supaya mahkamah mengisytiharkan beliau sebagai Menteri Besar yang sah.
Beliau dilantik Menteri Besar pada 17 Mac 2008.

Bagaimanapun ekoran tindakan khianat tiga Adun Pakatan Rakyat itu, BN yang mendakwa mendapat majoriti di Dun Perak telah menghadap Sultan bagi membentuk kerajaan negeri.
Tidak memperkenankan permohonan Nizar untuk membubarkan Dun, Sultan Azlan Shah telah berkenan melantik Zambry sebagai Menteri Besar yang baru pada 6 Februari lalu.

Nizar dalam afidavitnya berkata, beliau masih Menteri Besar atas alasan tidak ada sebarang undi tidak percaya dibuat terhadapnya dalam Dun dan beliau juga tidak meletak jawatan.

Zambry diwakili peguam Datuk Cecil Abraham, Sunil Abraham dan Farah Shuhadah Razali. Peguam Negara, Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail bertindak sebagai pencelah.

Nizar diwakili Sulaiman Abdullah, Mohamed Hanipa Maidin dan beberapa peguam kanan.- tajdid.

As Brunei citizens, we have to support wholeheartedly the desire of the Government of His Majesty to realize the Brunei Darussalam Vision 2035 which main objective is to maintain and raise up the standard of living of the rakyat, by providing them with high quality health care, sustainable development and stable socio-political atmosphere.

Before we proceed further, we should bear in mind that whatever the vision is, it has to go in line with our national philosophy – Melayu Islam Beraja (Malay Islamic Sultanate) or better known as MIB.

The importance of upholding the MIB philosophy is to ensure that the future generation enjoy the fruits of the vision while still firmly promoting the moral values prescribed by Islam. An ultra modern state, with hi-tech life style and super high per capita income, can not be considered a developed nation without moral values.

From this point of view, we have to stress that the rakyat especially our young children have to be crystal clear with the national philosophy so that they will not just absorb whatever technology available to them without considering the cultural values which symbolizes the uniqueness of our nation.

“Brunei Government must give its people confidence in the future, with Vision 2035, the government is safeguarding its assets for the next generation….” That’s part of His Majesty’s titah.

In order to make the people support and participate in pursuing the vision, we have to make an integrated effort to make the rakyat fully understand the projects and programmes stipulated in the blue prints. We have to be transparent to the rakyat, so that they will be willing to work hand in hand, in any field they can, with the Government to realize the vision.

His Majesty also stated that the Government is ambitious to provide the rakyat with a higher quality of life not only in the region but also in the world by 2035.

His Majesty also foresees the challenges to maintain or even raising the standard of living for the rakyat when the oil and gas are depleted considering the conservative estimate in about thirty years from now.

Since the studies have been done, plans have been devised and strategies are in place as stated by Awg Hj Mahrub bin Hj Murni, The Acting Director of Information Department, in what way can we help to speed up the realization of this vision or at least get all the programmes and projects mobilised?

Can the fourty thousand officers and staff of the public service working at twelve ministries and one hundred and six government agencies mobilize the progammes and projects? Let’s take for granted everybody is playing their individual role supporting the Government, can we realize this vision before or by 2035?

The answer is ‘Yes’. It is up to the Government and the rakyat to make the vision a reality. We should cultivate in the mindset of everyone whose allegiance is only to His Majesty and Brunei Darussalam, that this vision is the best gift for the rakyat.

The next step is to identify the setback that will delay the implementation of the programmes and the projects within the vision. The term, ‘Jam Melayu’ or Malay time, should be abolished totally.

Yes, procrastination is and will be our greatest enemy. As one expert said, lackadiasical attitude towards enforcement of discipline in the civil service is the major reason for the sluggish working of the Government machinery.

We have to address this bad habit and motivate those involved to coming into work early, reading regularly in their field, taking courses to improve their skills and focusing on high-value tasks so as to have enormous positive impact on their future.

On the other hand, we must emphasize to them that coming to work late and socializing with coworkers may seem fun and enjoyable in the short term, but inevitably it leads to lack of concentration, underachievement and frustration in the long run.

Everyone involved in pursuing this vision should be action-oriented. They should be able to be their own cheerleader so that they can focus on solution rather than the problem. They must always be optimistic and constructive.

Last but not least those involved must develop a sense of urgency so that they will move fast on the key tasks. A naysayers, pessimists and time wasters will not be able to participate in realizing this beautiful vision which will benefit the rakyat of Brunei Darussalam in the next generation.

Undeniably such a vision blended with the national philosophy will make Brunei Darussalam one of the best places to stay. Every one dreams to live in a place where the health care is superb, the people highly educated and respectful, the business environment condusive complemented by a stable socio-political atmosphere.

Let us support the vision which will make our future generation highly educated, informationalised, competitive and respectful.
