KOTA BARU: Allowing all members of parliament to debate and put forward questions in the upcoming special Parliament sitting will help resolve issues, Pas vice-president said
Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah, who is also Kelantan Deputy Menteri Besar, said MPs should take this opportunity to raise relevant and important issues during the sitting, to be held for five days beginning tomorrow.
"The government has numerous plans to help the people but many people are not clear or unaware about them.
"Therefore, by allowing MPs to debate and submit questions during Parliament sitting, I believe it will resolve all these issues," he said, after presenting cash donations to 250 single mothers under his Panchor state constituency today.
Mohd Amar, however, warned that MPs should not turn the session into a "politic battlefield".
"They should not play politics during the Parliament sitting as it will disturb the process," said Mohd Amar.
Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Parliament and Law) Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan had said recently that all MPs would be allowed to debate and put forward questions during the sitting.
He said the Dewan Rakyat speaker would have the final say on these matters during that session and also determine the duration allocated to each MP.
He added that the speaker would allow MPs to debate as long as the issue does not violate the procedures of the debates.
On June 29, Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah had made his second call for Parliament to meet as soon as possible.
