Below are two news stories, which would make headlines tomorrow, picked-up from Bernama due to their magnitude. The Court of Appeal has ruled that BN's Zambry is the rightful Menteri Besar of Perak.
The second is the death of a state assemblyman in Kelantan. This would pave way for another by-election. The BN, I feel, should participate in this by-election as it was due to natural causes.

PUTRAJAYA, May 22 -- A three-man bench of the Court of Appeal, in a unanimous decision, today declared Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir as the rightful menteri besar of Perak.
The court held that the order made by the High Court on May 11, in declaring Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin as the legitimate menteri besar, was wrong and set aside that decision.
"The learned High Court judge had failed to properly and adequately appreciate the entire evidence before him, and that rendered the decision as wrong," said Justice Datuk Md Raus Shariff, who sat with Justices Datuk Zainun Ali and Datuk Ahmad Maarop.
Both Mohammad Nizar and Zambry were not present in court today.

KOTA BAHARU, May 22 -- Manik Urai state assemblyman Ismail Yaacob died early today of a heart attack. He was 60.
Ismail, one of the longest-serving PAS elected representatives in Kelantan, died at 5.55am at the Raja Perempuan Zainab II Hospital here. He was admitted to the hospital in April.
Ismail leaves a wife, Siti Zaharah Ibrahim, and 10 children. The burial will be held after the Friday prayers today.
Ismail, who was deputy head of the PAS Kuala Krai Division, won the Manik Urai state seat in the general election in 1985 and had been the elected representative there for five terms.
He did not contest the seat in the general election in 2004, paving the way for Zamzuri Mat Lazim to be the elected representative.
Ismail contested the seat again in the general election last year and defeated Mohamed Zulkifli Omar of the Barisan Nasional (BN) with a majority of 1,352 votes.

Dear YB Dato',

I've sent an email to your hotmail concerning the rotting condition of the wooden bridges in Bukit Jalil Recreational Park together with some photos. I don't know if YB Dato' has received it or not because I've haven't receive any acknowledgement on it. I hope YB Dato' will look into it asap before an accident occurs. Thank you.

- Ronnie

Good Day Sir

Looks like there will be loads of by-election and its the tax payers money which is ultimately used all in the name of " exercising your democratic rights".
Now lets make this plain and simple, next time there is anomination for a MP, please ensure he is medically fit. How many have so far died of natural causes or illness so far notwithstanding those who resign since the last nationwide election.
Yes please make it a criterion that age and medical fitness condition is compulsory.
I think the mass are tired of too much politics in this country.
Not a day passes by we have by elections in this country, and the politicians have a field day in this game.
There are pressing issues to be addressed here such as the current economic downturn, unemployment, investments etc.

Thanks for your space and time.
