Dewan Rakyat – Day 4 : CRIES OF PASSION - Guys love positive reinforcement in the sack

Speaker lays down ground rules
KUALA LUMPUR, May 5 — Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia kicked off today’s parliamentary sitting by telling MPs not to highlight trivial and technical matters.
In a 10-minute stern talk to them, he said he would disallow MPs from raising points of order unnecessarily unless they were substantial issues and were in the public interest.
He said MP had wasted too much time during the first sitting last Wednesday when they kept interrupting proceedings on points of order.
Karpal Singh terus cuba ganggu…
Siaran langsung sidang Dewan Rakyat untuk hari kedua Isnin dicemari sikit dengan gangguan selama 10 minit apabila Karpal Singh (DAP Bukit Gelugor) sekali lagi membangkitkan peraturan mesyuarat untuk mencabar kewibawaan Yang Dipertua Dewan, Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia.Semasa siaran bermula jam 10 pagi Karpal berkali-kali menyatakan, Yang dipertua harus membuat keputusan terhadap peraturan yang dibangkitkan sebelum boleh meneruskan aturan selanjutnya iaitu memulakan sesi pertanyaan lisan.Pandikar juga berkali-kali menyatakan tanggapan ahli DAP itu tidak benar walaupun beliau mempunyai pengalaman selama 26 tahun di dalam dewan yang mulia itu. Beliau lalu meminta Karpal merujuk kepada perkara 43 peraturan mesyuarat dan membacanya. Karpal tidak beruat demikian, tetapi terus menyatakan keputusan hendaklah didahulukan.KLIK PADA TAJUK UNTUK LAPORAN LANJUT. - 5/5/2008

Plus: Speaker wants full control
KUALA LUMPUR (May 5, 2008): Opposition Leader Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail (PKR-Permatang Pauh) challenged the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to set up an independent commission to probe the multi-billion ringgit purchases by the Defence Ministry.
She said the government’s integrity was severely affected when government leaders consented to corruption and wastage, practiced nepotism by distributing contracts and shares to family members and cronyism by enriching only a small group of society.
She quoted the purchase of military equipment or specifically the Scorpene submarine worth RM4.5 billion and the Sukhoi jet worth RM3.2 billion whereby massive amounts of commission were paid.
"The people’s perception is that these may not be commissions but bribes between the leaders and individuals who received the commissions,” she added.
Earlier, Wan Azizah said in the international scene, Malaysia being a member of Asean, Apec, Commonwealth, OIC and United Nations must not be isolated in its stand of what is happening around the world.
She said Malaysia must be firm and clear in defending the country’s sovereignty and act in line with the demands of universal fairness and values. – MORE
