Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Mohamad Ariff Md Yusof has rejected the application to convene a special sitting this Monday on grounds that it does not meet the prerequisites.


He said the letter submitted by Interim prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad did not meet the conditions of Parliament’s Standing Order 11(3), for not providing a complete “Motion Notification.”

The Speaker also concluded that the meeting can only be held upon receiving the decree from the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on the selection process for the next prime minister. – MMO
