The DAP on Monday reiterated its call for the dissolution of the Perak state legislative assembly to pave the way for a fresh election and allow the people to choose their government.

Its secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said only by returning the power to the people can the honour be returned to Perak and Malaysia.

“The momentous High Court decision today, declaring that Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin is the rightful Menteri Besar of Perak, is a victory for the people of Perak, democracy and justice,” he said in a statement.

The Kuala Lumpur High Court today declared Mohammad Nizar as the rightful Perak Menteri Besar.
