The Opening Ceremony witness BN renews their mandate to ruled Sarawak, but with an increasing number of opposition in the assembly. Also attended the ceremony was the Chief Minister of Sarawak, Tan Sri Abd Taib Mahmud and Speaker of the State Assembly, Datuk Mohammad Asfia bin Awang Nassar. In the ceremony, all State Assemblymen were reminded by the Governor to be discipline and not to arise any sensitive and racist issues when the Assembly is in session.

Unruly Behavior

The Democratic Action Party, DAP won the most seats among the Opposition Parties. And, the DAP members have always well-known for their tendency to not follow rules. For example is the wearing of Assembly ceremonial suits. Even though it is not compulsory, their excuses are always the same, lame excuses. The suits are a waste of taxes-payer money and require them to wear ‘songkok’, which is synonym with Malaysian Muslim identity and it is against the freedom of religion. Nevertheless, representatives from PKR and Independent have no problem wearing them.

Lame excuses, as always. You are elected to serve; ceremonial suit should not be a problem. How come these in-discipline politicians can be elected as Assemblymen? If it is for me, they are the first to be vote-out.
