Judge for yourself Speaker Azhar Harun’s response when MPs question him in Parliament on how Keningau MP Jeffrey Kitingan obtained an apparently early release from quarantine upon his arrival in the peninsula ahead of the high-stakes Budget vote in Parliament.
Kitingan is from the Star party, which is part of Gabungan Rakyat Sabah, aligned to Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin at the federal level.
The Budget vote is expected to be a close call.
