Be Careful Engaging Pm In Parliament Kj S Advice To Pn
Be careful when engaging with Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim in Parliament, former Umno leader Khairy Jamaluddin has “advised” Perikatan Nasional lawmakers.
According to Khairy, this is because Anwar is unlike his predecessors, who usually maintained statesman-like behaviour in the august House.
“Here’s an unsolicited advice for PN - the PM now is unlike other PMs. The previous PMs would not engage in shouting matches, they would take a more statesman-like approach to parliamentary affairs.
“PMX (Anwar) is one of the PMs who likes to provoke, true to his street fighter background.
“He’s definitely not a statesman in Parliament, so you have to be careful when engaging,” Khairy said in the latest episode of his ‘Keluar Sekejap’ podcast.
He was commenting on the walkout staged by PN lawmakers from the Dewan Rakyat last week during Anwar’s winding-up speech on the 12th Malaysia Plan mid-term review.
Former Umno leader Khairy JamaluddinThe walkout happened after Anwar took a swipe at Radzi Jidin (PN-Putrajaya) for laughing when he was explaining the issue of the discharge not amounting to an acquittal (DNAA) granted to Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
Elaborating, Khairy said Radzi “fell into Anwar’s trap”, after the latter singled him out during the parliamentary session.
“A serious discussion like that (on the DNAA) should have been more civilised. (But you) can’t blame either side as there was provocation from both sides. It’s unfortunate it had to happen like that,” said Khairy.
Podcast co-host Shahril Hamdan concurred, saying Radzi possibly scored an “own goal”, politically, by reacting the way he did in Parliament.
“He (Radzi) should have just given a quick witty response and sat down. Then, the focus would have been on PM’s provocation, but now the focus is on Putrajaya’s (Radzi’s) anger and prolonged tirade in Parliament.”
On the DNAA, Khairy said the issue is now in the court of public opinion as most relevant parties, including Anwar, have commented on it.
