State Legislative Assembly sitting adjourned sine die


THE State Legislative Assembly sitting which started on Nov 19 adjourned sine die at 3.35pm yesterday.

The motion to adjourn the sitting was tabled by Assistant Minister of Early Childhood Education and Family Development Rosey Yunus.

Speaker Datuk Amar Mohamad Asfia Awang Nassar announced the adjournment exactly an hour after the sitting resumed for the afternoon session. As is always the case, Chief Minister Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud as Minister of Finance and Minister of Resource Planning and Environment was the last to deliver his winding up speech. He took about 45 minutes to finish the speech.

It could be shorter, if not for interruptions on two occasions by Chong Chieng Jen (DAP-Kota Sentosa) and Wong King Wei (DAP-Padungan) who stood to seek for points of order.
