Poll Position: Nizar still rocks your world!

Technorati tags: , , , ,

In the most recent myAsylum opinion poll, Walski asked who you thought was still the legitimate Menteri Besar (Chief Minister) of Perak. Well, the poll was supposed to have ended at midnight tonight, but Walski figured that we could end it a few hours earlier, so that he can prepare for the next poll to unleash on you lot.

And, at the closing of the poll, it appears that for most of you who voted, Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin remains the legitimate MB of Perak.

At least as far as public opinion goes, anyway... 
(meanwhile, in the real world, and more, in the full post)

Where it counts, in the real world, things remain uncertain today as they were when Walski launched the poll a little over 2 weeks ago. Earlier this week on Wednesday, the judge assigned to hear Nizar's suit, Judicial Commissioner Mohamad Ariff Md Yusof, recused himself from the case (via The Nut Graph).

In a nutshell (no pun intended), it looks as though things are pretty much the same way they have been, and Perak still runs on autopilot.

On the UMNO half of the pitch, their supporters are, of course, convinced that Zambry is the rightful MB, by virtue of appointment by the Sultan of Perak. The not so gung ho aren't entirely convinced, and some even argue that the appointment wasn't quite right procedurally.

But here's the interesting bit - is UMNO really sure that Zambry's appointment was constitutional? Walski thinks that there is some shadow of a doubt. If not, why did their lawyers go on their little field trip?

To jolly 'ol London no less... definitely not pussyfooting around, or to see the queen... Naah... Walski thinks that they have their doubts, too. It's just that many die-hard UMNO supporters are simply too fucking dense to realize it.

In any case, the result of this little informal poll pretty is much consistent with the other more authoritative polls that have been conducted.

Nizar, it appears, still rocks your world...
