Today is my turn for Parlimentary duty in Parlimen. There are 4 verbal questions for our Ministry and Deputy Minister will be there to answer it. One of the question i.e. question no. 4 will be live telecast during the 30 minute live telecast of Parlimen’s presiding.
This is my fourth time for Parlimen duty and the obvious changes I can see are:-
(i) the parking space is full to the brim. People actually parked their car up to the guard house. Can u believe that? I have to make 2 rounds around the building before I can find a parking space, which it at the dumpsite of the building. During my previous duties, I usually park my car at the parking site besides the building. Now that site is all reserved to Member of Parliament. It’s seems not only the political arena is changing in my beloved country, but also everything associated with the politic; and
(ii) there are so many reporters at the Parlimen lobby and they are actually stay there until the end of the meeting. Whereas in previous year, there are usually only 2 or 3 reporters at the lobby. I guess with the current scenario, there will always some unexpected situation in Parliament.
Today Parliament session’s end at 6.30 p.m. and I can consider myself lucky because a day before, the meeting finished at 12.30 a.m. Today debate is about penggulungan Titah Y.D.P. Agong by Ministry at Prime Minister Department. Nothing about MOH except the 2 additional questions for the verbal answer.
