Scrapped PM’s Question Time may return in next Parliament session


KUALA LUMPUR: The proposed Prime Minister's Question Time, which was scrapped last month, might be introduced in the next Parliamentary sitting, says Deputy Speaker Nga Kor Ming.

 

“I believe that our Prime Minister is very capable and he will be able to answer in full confidence.

 

“So, I think it might be (implemented) by this year or the next Parliamentary session at the latest,” he said.

 

Nga said that parliamentary reform is an ongoing process, citing the special motion to compel all lawmakers to declare their assets which was passed on Monday (July 1) as an example.

 

“It is an important move for the parliamentary reform. So, for the Prime Minister's Question Time, I believe that it will be implemented.

 

“Wait for the right time,” he said in Parliament on Wednesday (July 3).

 

The proposed Prime Minister's Question Time was scrapped by de facto law minister Datuk Liew Vui Keong on June 24.

 

He had said the current Minister's Question Time on Tuesday and Thursday was sufficient for the time being.
