Motion To Replace A Speaker
Lim Wei Jiet, Constitutional Lawyer
Over the weekend, reports emerged that Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is seeking to replace Tan Sri Mohamad Ariff Md Yusof as Dewan Rakyat Speaker. The motion, which also includes Deputy Speaker Nga Kor Ming, is set to be tabled on July 13th, when Parliament reconvenes. For a better understanding of the constitutionality of the move, and how it will affect the no-confidence vote also expected to be tabled in this parliamentary sitting, we reached out to constitutional lawyer Lim Wei Jiet, for his thoughts.
