Leaders must not mudah lupa the people who put them in power in the first place lest they themselves be forgotten in the long run, writes Mustafa K Anuar.
Aliran hails the judgment of the Kuala Lumpur High Court and salutes Justice Datuk Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahim for his honesty and integrity in delivering a judgment that does justice to his profession.
Unlike the previous judgments on various issues pertaining to and contributing to the Perak political crisis, which were totally disappointing and appalling, this particular judgment has done credit to the judiciary.
Democracy is in crisis in Perak. When politicians don’t respect the democratic process or accept the verdict of the people as their choice of government it is democracy that falls victim to these unscrupulous elements.
What had happened in Perak is the subversion of the people’s government by elements courting unethical and corrupt people to bring about the downfall of a duly elected government.
