The motion put in by PKR’s Bukit Katil MP Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin yesterday to discuss the provocation by the group and its leader Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos was rejected by Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia as the issue has already been discussed in the Dewan Rakyat.

“I received a letter from the Speaker earlier to reject the motion that I have filed. The reason given by the Speaker is that the issue has already been debated when the Home Minister was wrapping up the Budget speech,” he told reporters during a press conference at the Parliament lobby today.

The PKR vice-president pointed out that the explanation given by Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi was not sufficient and more debates were needed considering the seriousness of the threats especially with the Bersih 5 rally taking place this weekend.

“There was an answer given lately but it does not address the seriousness of the issue ahead of the final preparations for the November 19 rally,” Shamsul added.

He also had asked the Parliament to summon Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar to give a complete explanation on actions to be taken against provocateurs like Jamal.

“After the recent incidents which have happened before the main event this weekend, we parliamentarians feel there must be a ruling made. If the motion was not rejected earlier, it could have been debated tomorrow,” Shamsul stressed.
