Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas’ opening address last Friday.
Dissatisfied with what Rayer had uttered, Shah Headan stood up and repeatedly demanded that he retracted his words.
“Tarik balik, tarik balik (Retract, retract),” Shah Headan was heard shouting at Rayer.
A defiant Rayer refused to do so, leading to a war of words between the two.
“Duduk atau keluar dua-dua (Sit down or both of you get out),” Law was heard telling them repeatedly.
Refusing to calm down, Law then ordered the two out of the house for the whole day.
State opposition leader Datuk Jahara Hamid (BN-Teluk Air Tawar) then stood up and questioned Law’s decision against Shah Headan.
Law then ordered for calm in the house and Salleh was allowed to proceed with his debate.
Speaking to newsmen later, a dissatisfied Shah Headan described the decision to eject him as unfair.
“What he (Rayer) had said was rude, and as such, I demanded that he retract his words.
“For that, I am asked to leave. That is not fair,” he said, adding that there were many other important issues plaguing the state but Rayer chose to utter such words.
“It clearly shows he has no orientation. Just imagine what will happen if the reverse happens.”
Shah Headan said BN politicians, including him, had a mother, wife, daughters and women voters.
“There is no way we (BN) take them as sex objects.”
Rayer, however, defended his action, saying he only raised the issue of how BN politicians had treated women in a demeaning manner as can be seen in the recent statements made by several BN politicians.
In another matter, BN assemblymen yesterday wore white ribbons over their coats as a symbolic gesture to declare the DAP-led state government’s competency, accountability and transparency (CAT) policy as dead.
They did so after three of their motions — namely for Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng to relinquish his position following his graft case, to standardise pensions for ex-assemblymen and a call for civil servants and state administrators to go on leave when they are tried for corruption — were rejected for debate.
Jahara lamented Law’s decision to reject the three motions.
Law had said his decision was final. Speaking at a press conference, Jahara questioned the need for elected representatives to attend the state legislative assembly sitting if they could not make their voices heard.
