PUTRAJAYA, April 28 – Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir today failed to get a fast-track hearing at the Federal Court, which allowed an objection raised by his ousted rival Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin and sent the case back to the Kuala Lumpur High Court.

The panel of five judges led by Tan Sri Alauddin Mohd Sheriff noted “there exists disputes of facts yet to be determined by the High Court” when rejecting Zambry’s application to interpret several Constitutional questions.

The judge said the issue would have to be determined by the High Court, adding that Zambry’s application was dismissed based on the preliminary objection but not on merits. Malaysian Insider
