Karpal suspended for two days

Mind your words in Parliament otherwise you are subjected to disciplinary action.

By accusing Speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia of being "not serious" and "playful", DAP chairperson Karpal Singh has been suspended for two days from Parliament.

Karpal took offence to Nazri referring to Wee Choo Keong (PKR-Wangsa Maju) as 'blind'.

"The minister has insulted the disabled people, and as I represent them, I want him to retract!" said Karpal.

The heated exchange went on until Pandikar had to interject and said the minister had done nothing wrong. Pandikar added that the word 'blind' did not refer to any disabled people.

Unconvinced, Karpal then trained his anger at the speaker, stating: "You are not serious and are being playful (about this)!"

"I have given you a warning and I have to take action under the Standing Orders. I am suspending you for two days from Parliament," said Pandikar.
