Anak Perak bangkit,
Lawan kita lawan,
Lawan penderhaka Sultan!
Nizar was heavily backed by DAP Perak leaders to stand for election in this Parliamentary seat although Tok Guru of PAS voiced his objections in the initial stages.
Tok Guru had the opinion that if Nizar sees himself as the Menteri Besar of Perak, he should not contest in Bukit Gantang.
Winds of change came when a few days ago, Tok Guru gave his blessings to Nizar to proceed to win the seat in Bukit Gantang.
Whether or not Tok Guru's move is a change of his initial opinion under pressure from the President of PAS and several PAS leaders, it is uncertain.
News have spread in media that Nizar filled his nomination forms and declared his current occupation as ADUN Pasir Panjang, not Menteri Besar Perak.
This is a surprise move given that the declaration is a legal statement and Nizar has a Court case to declare Zambry's Government as illegal, which will reinstall Nizar as the Menteri Besar of Perak if he wins the case.
On 4th February 2009, Nizar said that "I have no doubt that the decision will be fair to all... to the people and to the political parties. He said that he needed time to look into the matter. I will abide and accept whatever the decision." (Bernama)
Demonstrations and speeches at the Perak Menteri Besar's house were carried out on the 4th and 5th of February 2009.
Perakians then saw protests and acts of violence in Kuala Kangsar on the 6th February 2009.
It was reported and caught on film that protestors, a majority of them Malay Opposition supporters, were lying on the road to block the path of Malaysian leaders on their way to Istana Iskandariah, Kuala Kangsar.
Those were still acceptable to a certain degree until a defining moment of treason when the entourage of Raja Nazrin Shah faced protestors who acted violently against the Raja Muda of Perak.
That sparked the violent acts and disrespect to the noble household of Perak, in the likes of Sultan Azlan Shah (former Lord President of Malaysia) and Raja Nazrin Shah (a Royalty with respectable views and academic qualifications).
On April 7th, the voters must decide how they want the "Sistem Demokrasi dan Raja Berperlembagaan" to be in the future.
I await the outcome.
