One for All

The election of Dato’ Azhar “Art” Azizan @ Harun as the Speaker of the XIV Parliament has it precedence from the election of immediate past Speaker Tan Sri Mohamed Ariff Mohamad Yusoff.

Upon the XIV Parliament being established on 8 June 2018 after the historical 14GE on 9 May 2018, the only nominated candidate of the Speaker of Dewan Rakyat automatically assumed the position and job in the absence of another candidate.

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Mohd Yassin nominated Azhar to replace Arif, which coincidentally was out voted by 111-109 in the order of items when the current sitting convened on Monday 13 July 2020.

Art was a practicing barrister before appointed as Chairman of the Election Commission.

The Opposition, namely MPs of Pakatan Harapan were quick to manifest their natural disrespect of authority including the Speaker of Dewan Rakyat.

Speaker Art Harun summarily ejected Shah Alam MP Khalid Abdul Samad, who was rudely interrupting the former’s maiden address to the House.

It is expected that Opposition MPs continue to act and behave rudely and gross disrespect to the decorum, for their political stunts through remaining of the XIV Parliament sittings.
