Opposition walk out of Dewan over ‘last-minute’ slot for PM

KUALA LUMPUR: Opposition MPs have staged a walkout from the Dewan Rakyat this afternoon, over a “last-minute” slot given to Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim to thank the present and past Yang di-Pertuan Agongs for their service.

At a press conference, Muhyiddin Yassin (PN-Pagoh) said this was an extraordinary occurrence as they were not informed of the slot given to Anwar, while the debate on the King’s speech was ongoing.

“This is tyranny of the majority. Just because they have a majority they can do what they want without following the procedures that have been in place for so long,” said the former prime minister.

Opposition leader Hamzah Zainudin meanwhile claimed it was an abuse of power for the government to insert a slot in the agenda at their own whims and fancies.
