Umno is being accused of hiding behind the Perak palace’s immunity like a coward instead of facing Pas in an open election by Kelantan Menteri Besar. Malaysia reports:

“Stand like a man and face Pas in open elections,” Nik Aziz said in a statement carried by the party’s website.

The Kelantan Menteri Besar said Pas was ready to face Umno and criticised their action to involve the Perak palace in its power grab for the state government recently.

“Umno-BN are not behaving like a gentleman because they still involve the palace and hide behind its immunity,” he declared, but refused to comment on the Selangor sultan’s statement against those involved in street protests against the Perak ruler.

Meanwhile according to AgendaDaily, Nizar was also invited to Royal dinner at Perak palace on Saturday. However, instead of sitting on the stage together with the Sultan and other MBs (Khalid of Selangor, Adnan of Pahang) Nizar reported to be seated on the third row from the stage.
