Sad state of affairs in Parliament with MPs behaving badly

WATCHING the current proceedings in Parliament makes me wonder why opposition MPs cannot debate with professionalism. The level of rudeness and disrespect they show to the government of the day and leaders of the House is unbelievable.

They are so badly behaved, interrupting the speakers, shouting at the top of their voices and using nasty and rude words. What has Malaysia become? What has happened to our moral values?

Their stated reason for wanting Parliament to reconvene was to raise questions on the management of the Covid-19 pandemic, but their actual objective is to create hatred among the general public against the government.

Opposition MPs are well aware of the rules in the Dewan Rakyat. The programme for the day is pre-arranged in the Order Paper, which lists the questions that would be raised and who would reply.

These MPs know that the general public watching the proceedings are not aware of this fact, so they attack the government while pretending that they do not know who would be answering the questions.

They do not have genuine concern for finding a solution to help manage the pandemic. They are only going all out to get the general public to hate the government, saying that it has failed in containing the pandemic.

It is only fair for MPs to answer the questions according to their turn. Despite knowing this, opposition MPs choose to humiliate the Prime Minister for not being there to answer questions.

I do not allow my children to watch live telecasts of the proceedings in Parliament on TV because I do not condone that sort of behaviour and rudeness. I do not want them to learn such things from our so-called wakil rakyat.

I do wish the next general election will be held soon so that we can vote for wiser and professional leaders to look after Malaysians.
