Opposition reps need to show respect, says Shabudin

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Opposition elected representatives need to learn to show some respect and not be rude to the country's leaders, says Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) Religious Bureau chairman Datuk Shabudin Yahaya.

He said that several DAP MPs had been shouting while Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was reciting the al-Fatihah for Covid-19 victims during the Special Sitting of Parliament on Monday (July 26).

Shabudin said their actions showed the true attitude of DAP leaders as they continued to shout while ignoring what the prime minister was doing.

"They had absolutely no respect for the Prime Minister who called on members of the Dewan Rakyat to reflect and recite the al-Fatihah for the victims of Covid-19.

"This is the true nature of DAP leaders who do not know how to show respect in a forum,” he said.

Shabudin said that Muhyiddin had conveyed his condolences to the family of Covid-19 victims at the beginning of his speech just before the commotion started.

Shabudin claimed the DAP MPs were seen shouting "point of order” several times, which stopped the Pagoh MP from continuing his speech.

"I deeply regret the actions of the DAP elected representatives and urge them to apologise to the Prime Minister and all Malaysians. They went overboard and their actions were embarrassing and cannot be allowed to continue," he said. - Bernama
