The Malacca state opposition has formally handed over a memorandum of protest to the state legislature, after it stopped giving out copies of the written answers to oral questions to opposition state assemblypersons.

Opposition leader Khoo Poay Tiong said that he is giving Speaker Wira Othman Muhamad seven days to resolve the matter, or he would take more drastic action, without specifying what he had in mind.

The Ayer Itam assemblyperson lambasted that this smacked of the assembly sidelining parliamentary democracy, as well as insulting democracy.

“It is clear that the rakyat’s right to information has been denied, This is unfair and unjustified. Opposition assemblypersons are also representatives of the rakyat to hold the government to account on its policies and solutions to problems in the state.

“The government should give an explanation and take accountability to all questions,” Khoo said in a press conference today.

He also reminded the speaker that the legislature as an independent democratic institution, should not be allowed to fall under the influence of the executive or the judiciary.
