PAS MP apologises, avoids four-day suspension from Parliament

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Awang Hashim (PN-PAS) has made a swift apology, which led Parliament Speaker Tan Sri Johari Abdul to retract a four-day suspension imposed on the Pendang MP.

This came after Opposition leader Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin requested Johari for leniency on his earlier decision to suspend Awang.

"Pendang, please retract your statement," said Hamzah.

Awang stood up and tried to speak but Hamzah immediately told him to stop arguing and apologise.

Awang then stood up and apologised to Johari.

"I agree and accept," Johari said to thumps of approval from the floor.

Awang was earlier suspended when he kept interjecting Johari, who was addressing a commotion that arose when Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was about to present his motion of thanks on the Royal Addressby His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim, King of Malaysia.
