Opposition MPs not well-groomed, behave like ‘monkeys’


(Malaysian Digest) – Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz said today that most of the current opposition MPs actually are not prepared to become the people’s representatives.

Nazri (pic) said most of them are actually surprised that they can win in the last general election in 2008.

He said this when asked to comment on the chaos that often occurs in the Dewan Rakyat involving opposition MPs to the extent that people think that the Parliament of Malaysia as a circus.

“They (Opposition MPs) are doing it because there is no culture to be a Member of Parliament among them. Many of them run as candidates, and was surprised to win. They really did not prepare, that’s why we can see them behaving like ‘monkeys’ in the Dewan Rakyat.

“They (Pakatan Rakyat leaders) are actually united on the negative intention of overthrowing the government, not trying to fight for the people. That is why we see with Barisan Nasional (BN) MPs, we have a culture of fighting for the people. But the opposition is not here to defend the people. Their arguments are all slanders against Umno, BN and the Prime Minister,” said Nazri.


He added that most opposition MPs come to parliament sessions just to discredit the government.

“Come to parliament, criticize the government’s work. That is why we see the majority of them come to parliament and speak just to discredit the BN government, “he said.

According to Nazri, the chaotic atmospheres that often raised by opposition MPs are actually worse than a circus.

“In a circus, animals do not bite the hands of his keeper. But if there are people who, like Tian Chua (Batu MP) who can bite the ears of a policeman, it is worse than a circus.

“They (Pakatan MPs) are also made up of many actors even video actors. So there’s no wonder they have made the parliament as a place of ‘drama minggu ini’. They don’t have other work other than cheating, treachery, slander and making up stories to the extent that, after lying so much, they’ve come to believe in their own frauds, “said the Padang Rengas MP, adding that people are now beginning to see through the falsehood of Pakatan Rakyat in its struggle.
