Some politicians still want the right to hop, says Azalina

PETALING JAYA: Umno Supreme Council member Azalina Othman Said feels there are two likely reasons why her proposal for recall elections was rejected in the Dewan Rakyat this week.

One is that the government intends to draw up its own law, and the other is that some politicians do not want party hopping stopped.

However, she remains confident that the law will come to pass.

Azalina, the former deputy speaker of the Dewan Rakyat, said the government has given an undertaking to ban party hopping because of its political understanding with the opposition.

“Maybe that’s why the government decided it would be much better if the bill came from them.” she said after seeing her private member’s bill being shot down twice, with the latest rejection coming this week.
