Op­po­si­tion move des­per­ate: Aza­lina

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

MIN­IS­TER in the Prime Min­is­ter’s Depart­ment Datuk Seri Aza­lina Oth­man Said said op­po­si­tion MPs have shown how des­per­ate they are by invit­ing for­mer prime min­is­ter Tun Dr Ma­hathir Mo­hamad to Par­lia­ment House.

She said in a state­ment that their act of invit­ing Ma­hathir, who is chair­man of Parti Pribumi Ber­satu Malaysia, was noth­ing more than a po­lit­i­cal gim­mick.

Ma­hathir at­tended a spe­cial meet­ing on par­lia­men­tary priv­i­leges and im­mu­nity of MPs and spoke to the me­dia at the Par­lia­ment lobby.

Aza­lina said the op­po­si­tion MPs should have made use of the Stand­ing Or­ders if they were un­happy with mat­ters in the De­wan Rakyat.

Aza­lina said Ma­hathir’s pres­ence at Par­lia­ment House would not change any­thing in the par­lia­men­tary sys­tem. “Would the par­lia­men­tary re­forms, im­ple­mented un­der the lead­er­ship of Prime Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Na­jib Abdul Razak, have seen re­al­i­sa­tion when he (Ma­hathir) was the prime min­is­ter?” she asked.

Ma­hathir, ac­com­pa­nied by Ge­lang Patah MP Lim Kit Siang and for­mer deputy prime min­is­ter Tan Sri Muhyid­din Yassin, ar­riv­ing at Par­lia­ment House for a meet­ing with op­po­si­tion mem­bers
