MP’s sus­pen­sion with­drawn

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KUALA LUMPUR: The gov­ern­ment with­drew a mo­tion to sus­pend Lim Lip Eng (DAP-Segam­but) af­ter he re­tracted his “harsh” re­marks against Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mu­lia.

Min­is­ter in the Prime Min­is­ter’s Department Datuk Seri Aza­lina Oth­man Said said the gov­ern­ment was will­ing to with­draw the mo­tion if Lim apol­o­gised.

“I am will­ing to re­tract my harsh words,” Lim said in the De­wan Rakyat yes­ter­day, as soon as Aza­lina tabled the mo­tion.

Lim had on Oct 25 re­port­edly called Pandikar a “dis­grace” to Par­lia­ment af­ter a heated ar­gu­ment with the Speaker in the spe­cial cham­bers dur­ing a sit­ting.

Lim had said the Speaker was “ap­pointed by Malaysian Of­fi­cial One” un­like the MPs who are elected by the peo­ple.

Pandikar, who was up­set with the re­marks, then ejected Lim from the spe­cial cham­bers.
