I make it short and simple, this time. Whilst browsing through this morning, came across this in NST tagline 22nd April 2009 :
Heated debate spills out of assembly
A HEATED debate in the state assembly sitting yesterday spilled out of the chamber when a Parti Keadilan Rakyat member of parliament confronted a backbencher who had allegedly "attacked" her during the debate.
Kuantan MP Fuziah Salleh lost her cool when Zaharuddin Abu Kassim (BN-Kerdau) claimed that Leong Ngah Ngah (DAP-Triang) was reading a text prepared by "an opposition leader who was observing the opposition assemblymen".
Fuziah was in the public gallery at the time, when Zaharuddin questioned Leong's arguments during the debate on a motion of thanks for the royal address
Fuziah said it was wrong for Zaharuddin to attack her in the state assembly and his action showed that he was "bankrupt of ideas".
Earlier, Leong's speech was continuously interrupted by backbenchers when he raised several issues, including regarding former Perak menteri besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin.
His repeated references to Nizar as the people's favourite leader was questioned by several backbenchers.
"Nizar is not a consistent leader. He never admitted that his mother was Chinese before the general election but admitted it when campaigning in Bukit Gantang to win Chinese votes," said Datuk Lau Lee (BN-Damak).
Leong also caused backbenchers to protest when he said BN component parties were only fighting for their own ethnic groups.
My English may be failing me. I have read it twice and reread slowly so as not to miss any point or get myself confused. In the end, I am still confused! I did not read any statement mentioning PKR MP attacking Fuziah. What I read and understand is Zaharudin (BN) is the one who irks Fuziah (BN)...
Maybe you guys out there are better informed and care to tell me where I miss the point? And when does the heated argument spilled out of assembly? If it does, who are the disputing parties?
Till then...G'nite M'sia...wherever u are...
