ALOR SETAR, Feb 2, 2016:The opposition’s stand over the Kedah Menteri Besar crisis was among the matters told to the state’s Regency Council today. However, when asked further about any decision made, Alor Mengkudu assemblyman Ahmad Yahya from PAS said he knew nothing on the matter, adding that they were asked several questions. “We, from the Opposition, want to convey appreciation to the Regency Council for giving us the opportunity to put forward our views. “We took a stand that the method used to change the Menteri Besar of Kedah was a method that should not have been used. It is undemocratic. “If he was chosen using the right way, he should be asked to leave in a civilised manner,” he told reporters after the meeting that took place at Wisma Darul Aman here today. Ahmad added that the final decision should be left to the state legislative assembly as the best way to change the MB. “How this will happen depends on them. Perhaps a vote of no confidence can be called in the April sitting. It is up to them,” he said. PKR’s Lunas assemblyman Azman Nasrudin, who was with Ahmad when met by reporters, echoed similar sentiments. “We gave our cooperation so that the crisis can be resolved immediately. we just don’t agree on the method of changing the MB,” he said. After yesterday’s meeting with Barisan Nasional (BN) assemblymen, the Regency Council met with 13 opposition assemblymen over the Kedah MB crisis today. The BN assemblymen also refused to comment on the outcome of the meeting held with them. Earlier in a press statement, the state’s Opposition representatives said that changing MB was not a priority right now, if one were to compare to the crisis plaguing the country, in the interest of the rakyat. “If Datuk Seri Mukhriz was appointed democratically, then the process to bring him down must also be done democratically and should not be rushed, and follow the rules as well as respect what the rakyat wants. “It is not wise that in order to fulfill a certain individual’s political wish, all parties are being put through trouble, including the rakyat and the palace. “For us, right now, the move to change the MB is not a priority, as compared to the need to change the Prime Minister who has been causing hardship to the rakyat,” the representatives claimed. It has been two weeks since Kedah has faced an MB crisis, but to date, no solution has been made since 14 Kedah Umno chiefs pleaded to the Prime Minister for a change in leadership.
