Unruly Behavior

Opposition Leader of Sarawak State Assembly, Wong Hoo Leng (two from left), headed 11 DAP's MP who does not wear a ceremonial suits in the opening ceremony

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.
