From the Malaysian Insider:-
Datuk Seri Najib Razak appeared to distance himself from the Perak constitutional crisis, pointing out that it was up to Datuk Zambry Abdul Kadir to decide Barisan Nasional’s (BN) next move.
“I don’t know. It is up to the MB to decide on the next course of action. We are going to appeal to the Court of Appeal because we respect the due process of law and lets take it from there,” he told reporters here this afternoon.
Najib also said that he was not in the position to decide on the dissolution of the Perak state assembly and it was the Sultan’s prerogative to do so.
“It should not be for me to decide. It should be for the Sultan to decide. It is the judgment of the Sultan,” he concluded.
Interesting now that the master of the coup is “tai-chi-ing” the responsibility back to his hand picked MB and of course, the Sultan.
