What kind of Parliament sitting is this? – Mahathir

“Apa dia mesyuarant ini?” There will be no debate or vote at the one-day sitting of Parliament on 18 May, Mahathir Mohamad complains, saying he is being blocked from testing the Perikatan Nasional’s purported majority in the house.

He is having a taste of his own medicine. If he is in muhyddin’s shoe he will not hesitate to do the same. Let’s not forget what he did to the judiciary which have not recovered Since then. When he can do it to the judiciary will he have any hesitation to emasculate parliament? Well Mahathir destroyed the judiciary now muhyddin destroys the sanctity of parliament both unpardonable blunders in a parliamentary democracy. Now will the people rise against this abuse of executive power?

1 day parliament sitting ensures PN govt wont be sacked due no confidence motion. This is no brainer to guarantee PN govt survival and hold on to power till next sitting. Dont waste time with petition, even if 10m signatures still no effect.
