Nizar loses in Court of Appeal

The Court of Appeal overturned the decision of Kuala Lumpur High Court which ruled that Dato Seri Mohamad Nizar Jamaluddinn was the legitimate Menteri Besar of Perak, today.
The decision of the Court of Appeal will have a serious implication to the interpretation of our Federal Constitution and all the Constitutions of the states.
Nevertheless, as Nizar can still appeal to the Federal Court, the Perak political and constitutional crisis is still far from the ending.

YB Teng,

Do you think Federal court will again rule otherwise? I'm as a citizen seriously doubt so... :(

In order to appeal to the Federal Court, Nizar has to first obtain a leave (permission) from the Federal Court which has to be satisfied that there is a question of law to be tried. If he fails, that is the end of it.
