Bernama: Abdullah Rejects Calls For Parliament To Convene Special Session

Abdullah Rejects Calls For Parliament To Convene Special Session

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 18 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi today rejected Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s calls that a special Dewan Rakyat session be convened.

“I don’t see any need for it because parliament will resume sitting soon, after the Ramadan month. So use that time to do whatever,” he told a news conference after chairing an Umno supreme council meeting here.

Abdullah was asked to comment on Anwar’s call for parliament to convene an emergency session to debate an opposition motion of no confidence in the government.

Asked if individuals would be arrested under the Internal Security Act (ISA), he said, “I have no plans to use the ISA on anyone, I did not say anything to anyone; if there are people who feel that they will be arrested under the ISA, maybe it’s because they feel guilty.”


This is my personal view.

1. The call for parliament seating should be in the hand of the speaker of the house.

2. Of Course Abdullah don’t want a session to call for motion of no confident against himself .. C’mon, Who wouldn’t?

3. I would think that the Prime Minister undermining the understanding of the common people.  It is not the feeling of guilty, but the feeling of been threaten.
