Joint-Petition by 85 MPs to PM asking for a Parliamentary Debate on ISA

At the entrance of PM's office yesterday, Lim Lip Eng, Dr Siti Mariah, William Leong and Fong Poh Kuan questioned by journalists on the identity of the sole BN MP who broke rank

Over 1/3 of Malaysia’s Parliamentarians represented by PAS’s Dr Siti Mariah (Kota Raja MP), PKR’s William Leong (Selayang MP), Gwo-Burne Loh (Kelana Jaya), DAP’s Fong Poh Kuan (Batu Gajah) and I submitted a joint petition to Prime Minister at his office in Putrajaya yesterday around 11:30am, appealing for a parliamentary debate on ISA.

81 Pakatan Rakyat MPs (DAP, PAS & PKR), 3 independent MPs (SAPP & Pasir Mas) and 1 BN MP signed the historical petition.

What the Parliamentarians want is just a debate on ISA, not a repeal of it.

Will the Prime Minister try to salvage his legacy (if there is any left) by moving a motion in Parliament for the debate on ISA after the Depaavali break? We shall see.

By the way, for people’s sake, MCA, MIC and Gerakan, please stop acting.

Lim Lip Eng
