D-Day for Azhar as Parliament reconvenes. As Parliament reconvenes tomorrow, Dewan Rakyat Speaker Azhar Azizan Harun must decide whether he represents the legislature or executive branch of government, says DAP supremo Lim Kit Siang.
Lim said Azhar needed to uphold the King’s call for the Dewan Rakyat to debate the emergency proclamation, emergency ordinances and the National Recovery Plan, urging for votes to be taken for each of the ministerial statements during the sitting.
The Iskandar Puteri MP added that Azhar should resign if he fails to uphold the King’s decree in allowing the topics to be debated.
“The speaker should not be a party to any unconstitutional attempts by the executive to use the Dewan Rakyat Standing Orders to disable Parliament from exercising its constitutional functions set out in Article 150(3) of the constitution.
“The five-day special sitting must, firstly, fulfil the decree of the King and Malay Rulers for Parliament to debate and vote on the emergency proclamation, emergency ordinances and the National Recovery Plan.
“Secondly, it must make a difference in the losing war against the Covid-19 pandemic by adopting a new policy and strategy, going away from the present blind faith on total lockdowns,” he said in a statement today.
He also said de facto law minister Takiyuddin Hassan would keep to his word to have debates during the five-day special sitting.
