Change of guard in the House


"The government carried out an evaluation and felt, based on reasonable grounds, that he (Mohamad Ariff) would not be able to fulfil the needs and aspirations of the present administration." - Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan

PARLIAMENT saw an unprecedented change of guard with the removal of a sitting Dewan Rakyat Speaker and the appointment of the first woman Deputy Speaker.

Former Election Commission (EC) chairman Datuk Azhar Azizan Harun was appointed the Dewan Rakyat Speaker with a razor-thin majority.
