Hold face-to-face Parliament session – Ahmad

KUALA LUMPUR, July 4 – Secretary-General Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan calls for a face-to-face Parliament session instead of virtually conducted.

He said, all parties must be convinced since all Parliamentarians have been vaccinated.

“Have faith in the vaccination. No need for so many officers. Their drivers can just drop them off and leave,” he said in his Twitter account, today.

The Pontian MP had earlier seconded the view by Tan Sri Noh Omar that the face-to-face session is paramount to discuss and debate whatever issue raised by Members of Parliament.

Ahmad added the most important aspect of it is that all suggestion can get through better check and balance.

“Whatever they do is their rights. Some will suggest, support, oppose and even vote. As your reps, we will be at our best speaking for the people.

“We are still waiting for the date. It has to meet the required 20 days, for instance.

On June 30, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah reiterated that the Parliament should sit as soon as possible to enable the Emergency Proclamation and the Emergency Ordinance to be tabled as stipulated under Article 150 (3) of the Federal Constitution.
