Yet another Bill tabled, Parliament used as "rubberstamp"

This morning the government saw it fit to table a new Bill known as “Ruang Undang-undang Perlindungan Saksi 2008” (Witness Protection Bill 2008). I don’t understand why there is such a rush to table such an important Bill without giving MPs sufficient time to prepare for the debate.

It seems the Government under Badawi is using Parliament as a “rubberstamp” for his ill-thought-out policies.

Satu lagi Rang Undang-undang dibentangkan, Parlimen dianggap sebagai Pak Turut

Pagi tadi pihak pentadbiran anggap munasabah untuk membentangkan satu lagi Rang Undang-undang bertajuk “Rang Undang-undang Perlindungan Saksi 2008″ (Witness Protection Bill 2008). Saya tidak faham mengapa tindakan tergesa-gesa ini dalam membentangkan Rang Undang-undang yang sebegini penting tanpa memberi masa yang secukupnya untuk para Wakil Rakyat membahaskannya.

Nampaknya pentadbiran Badawi menggunakan Parlimen sebagai Pak Turut yang terus sahaja meluluskan segala dasarnya yang kurang prihatin.

    this is an almighty insult to the voters. since we gave the opposition a bigger voice, the BN administration has disrespected the Parliament process as they seem, in my opinion, not having sufficient intellectual capability to stand up to a proper debate with the PR MPs

    1) Lop-sided Speakers who seem to protect BN MPs
    2) Najib not allowing people to interject while he read out his stimulus package which is not accordance with procedural regulations
    3) rushing of bills by Badawi hoping to leave a legacy

    this is a big insult to the rakyat. I am not paying for a bully legislation headed by an incompetent administration.
