Speaker threatens to call cops on DAP MP, issues 5-day suspension
DAP's Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng earned a five-day suspension from the Dewan Rakyat today after he called a ruling made by Deputy Speaker Azalina Othman Said "stupid".Dewan Rakyat Speaker Azhar Azizan Harun initially imposed a two-day suspension but Lim's refusal to leave the hall earned him an additional three-day ban.An outcry started when Lim Guan Eng (DAP-Bagan) requested Azhar to revisit a ruling made by Azalina. Yesterday, Azalina had ordered PDP's Bintulu MP Tiong King Sing to apologise for his allegedly offensive remarks against Health Ministry director-general Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah.Lip Eng interjected and said, "But the ruling is stupid!"."You are too much... Keep quiet!," said Azhar as Lip Eng interrupted his attempt to deliver a ruling.Azhar also threatened to call the police on Lip Eng after his refusal to retract the slur against Azalina and to leave the hall as instructed.
