PETALING JAYA: It is “unparliamentary” and “professionally unethical” for Umno’s Kinabatangan MP Datuk Bung Moktar Radin to use foul language and the four-letter word in the Dewan Rakyat, said MCA Publicity spokesperson Datuk Seri Ti Lian Ker.

“Regardless of which party one belongs to, such language should not be used in the august house in any and all circumstances. Every MP should respect the rules and regulations in Parliament and conduct their business professionally,” he said in a statement.

“As politicians, we must not forget that we represent the rakyat and an MP is in Parliament because the rakyat gave him or her the honour when they voted him/her in. In return the elected MPs should conduct themselves with respect and decorum for the Speaker and the House,” said Ti.

Ti said whatever personal differences politicians have against each other should be addressed professionally and they must never allow emotions and feelings to get the better of them and lose their self-respect in the process.

On Tuesday (Aug 7), Bung uttered the “F” word in the House after being taunted by other MPs. This happened as Bung interjected during Khairy Jamaluddin (BN-Rembau) speech to ask a question on the Sales and Services Tax (SST).

Puncak Borneo MP Willie Mongin interrupted and asked Bung which casino he went to, in an apparent reference to a video clip being circulated that purportedly shows Bung gambling.

Bung later retracted the “F” word he used in the House, after Ipoh Timur MP Wong Kah Woh and several other Pakatan Harapan lawmakers had asked deputy speaker Mohd Rashid Hasnon to reprimand the Barisan Nasional lawmaker.
