Parliament round-up: Khairy steals limelight

May 16, 08 12:34pm

The Parliament session started and ended the week on a high with debutant member of parliament Khairy Jamaluddin (Umno-Rembau) playing a significant role.

On Monday, Khairy, fresh from being rebuked by opposition MPs last week, came out fighting in his maiden speech in the House by firing bullets at the Pakatan Rakyat parliamentarians.

Sparing none in the other camp, the prime minister's son-in-law let fly a litany of offending remarks against the Pakatan Rakyat coalition.

And then during the week, he was seen raising noise here and there but it was at the end of the week that he rose to prominence again.

Yesterday his supplementary question on the New Economic Policy (NEP) stirred up a row when the opposition accused him of planting the question to Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Amirsham A Aziz.

Amirsham, a Maybank CEO turned politician, was seen reading out a prepared answer to Khairy's supplementary question, much to the chagrin of the opposition MPs

Khairy denied planting the question, adding that Amirsham was "an intelligent man who anticipated my question".

And he went on to say: "It's not important whether (it's planted), but what's important is the substance. It's clear the opposition is trying to create trouble again because they are afraid of the answers."

For that, he earns Malaysiakini's MP of the Week award.

What's next in Parliament?

The new Parliament kicked off on April 28 with the election of the House speakers and the swearing-in of all 222 MPs. The next day the Agong officially opened the first parliament session with his speech.

This was followed by MPs taking turns to debate the Agong's speech, which ended this week. The ministers are now lining up to give their winding-up speeches. This is expected to continue next week.The Parliament, which sits from Monday to Thursday, will end its first session on May 27. After a one-month break, it will resume on June 23. This second session will last for only two weeks. The third session, which is the longest for this year, will be from Aug 18 to Dec 11.

We are a young nation and we should have not young leaders but rather leaders that reflect the population average of the country. Look at Singapore, the average of the cabinet is 54. That will make policies current, relevant and cirumstantial.

Azalina got it right bringing the age of Youth NGO posts to 40, even then it should be lower. Its all about representation of a generation, not race or gender. Why do youth these days avoid politics or current issues? Its because the so-called champs are bloody old age pensioners.

Its bad enough we lack icons in this country, do we still have to swallow Kit Siang, Karpal, Najib, Bung Mokhtar, Muhyiddin, Anwar arguing our future? Hell, its a time for a generational revolution. Its more than an ideology, its a lifestyle. How and why should we live under this political rule/climate? The opposition is no better.

All revolutions were started by young people...The Bastille, any type of Marxist idioms or social revolutions. All of us should populate the parties and purge the old generation, albeit PKR, UMNO, MIC or whatever.
