Anti-hopping law doesn’t apply to Iskandar Dzulkarnain’s case – Tuan Ibrahim
Kuala Kangsar MP Datuk Iskandar Dzulkarnain Abdul Khalid’s action in endorsing the Prime Minister’s leadership has no impact on his position in the Dewan Rakyat.
(Sinar Daily) – In fact, Pas Deputy President Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man described the drastic decision was made because the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) MP felt the plight and pressure felt by the people in his area following the lack of allocations channeled to the opposition.
“As a senior member of Pas, we (the opposition) never received an allocation from the government to begin with.
“When we were in government, we began receiving allocations, which allowed us to carry out our duties by providing allocations (to the opposition). In 1999 when I became an assemblyman, I never got a single sen of allocation in five years.
“In order to pay for office rent, employee salaries, and humanitarian aid, we must utilise our own allowance. That’s why some of my friends, even once an assemblyman’s duty is over, there’s still a lot of debt in the shop and with suppliers. It’s unfair.” he told Sinar.
