I refer to the legal suit today filed by the Kedah State Assembly Speaker against Kota Siputeh state assemblyman Datuk Abu Hassan Sarif and the Election Commission to stop the former from carrying out his duties as a state representative and to force a by-election at Kota Siputeh.

It is rather unfortunate that the PAS-led Kedah State Assembly Speaker had resorted to such an action which is a total waste of money that does not benefit Kedahans. To date, the PAS-led Kedah state government had failed to show how such legal proceedings would benefit Kedahans.

Instead, the PAS-led Kedah state government should concentrate their time and state resources to develop the state and help Kedahans.

Therefore, the Menteri Besar of Kedah from PAS must explain to all Kedahans:-
1.who is going to pay for all the legal costs in filing such a legal suit?; and
2.what are the benefits to Kedahan from such a legal suit and another by-election?
