BN rep referred to rights committee
THE state assembly referred Datuk Mat Nadzari Ahmad Dahlan (BN-Batang Kali) to the Rights and Privileges Committee for claiming that the Selangor government does not give royal institutions due recognition.
Mat Nadzari uttered the statement during his budget debate speech on Nov 1 as the state opposition coordinator.
Speaker Hannah Yeoh (DAPSubang Jaya) said Mat Nadzari was given ample opportunity to retract his statement but he refused to do so.
She said the committee will convene within a few weeks and Mat Nadzari will be called to explain his statement.
Yeoh, who chairs the committee, said Mat Nadzari will be be given an opportunity to clear himself.
“The committee will put forward a recommendation to the Dewan, which can be disciplinary, and the House will debate it,” she said.
Yeoh said this will provide Mat Nadzari several stages to clear his name before any action is taken against him.
