KUALA LUMPUR, July 29 — A Facebook video broadcast “live” by Segambut MP Hannah Yeoh this afternoon showed many lawmakers from both Pakatan Harapan, Umno, Parti Pejuang Tanah Air (Pejuang) and independents remaining inside the Dewan Rakyat while Parliament was put into lockdown after two officials were found to be Covid-19 positive.

Those who could be seen clearly in the video were Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Bagan MP Lim Guan Eng, Puchong MP Gobind Singh, Muar MP Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman, and Bukit Gelugor MP Ramkarpal Singh.

They appeared to be waiting for the parliamentary session that was twice postponed earlier to resume.

The video also showed several other lawmakers milling in the Parliament lobby. Among those spotted were Lembah Pantai MP Fahmi Fadzil, Bakri MP Yeo Bee Yin, Simpang Renggam MP Maszlee Malik and Pejuang secretary-general Datuk Amiruddin Hamzah.

Transport Minister Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong was also seen sitting alone in the cafe reserved for MPs.

Umno lawmakers such as Pekan MP Datuk Seri Najib Razak, Pontian MP Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan were also seen in the feed. 

The MPs in Parliament appeared uncertain about what would happen to them next.

Commenting in the video, Anwar said he has not been informed about what would happen in the Dewan Rakyat.

Kuala Selangor MP Datuk Seri Dzulkefly Ahmad also claimed that some MPs were allowed to leave the building despite the lockdown announced by the Deputy Speaker earlier.

  1. Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using
    for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and
    I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome
    if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  2. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility
    but I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though!
    Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Thanks

  3. My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less.
    I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for
    about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts
    into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
