Dr Zambry sworn as the new MB ended Perak’s political impasse

Barisan Nasional (BN) officially took over the Perak state administration today with Pangkor assemblyman Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir sworn in as the new Menteri Besar.

The swearing-in ceremony took place before the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah, at the Istana Iskandariah in Bukit Chandan, Kuala Kangsa as 11th Perak Menteri Besar.

All 28 PR assemblymen boycotted the ceremony, with their supporters staging a demonstration outside the Ubudiah Mosque, just 300 metres from the palace.

Dr Zambry’s appointment effectively ended Perak’s political impasse, with the PR government losing its majority in the state legislative assembly when four of its assemblymen quit the parties’ to step down immediately.
