Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has somewhat defended the manner in which
Pakatan Rakyat's ousted Perak speaker V Sivakumar was dragged out of the House
yesterday.Speaking to reporters in Kuala Lumpur today, he said Sivakumar "should have vacated his seat" since he was no longer the speaker."I don't know... he did not
want to vacate his seat. When he is no longer the speaker, then he should have
vacated his place," he added.According to him, the chaotic proceedings in the
Perak state assembly has tarnished the nation's image although Malaysia
practiced a "mature democracy"."Our government is holding firm to constitutional
rights and democracy. If we do not respect this practice, then it would be no
less than a jungle law," he said.Even if both sides of the political divide have
different principles, the premier stressed that "they shouldn't have forced
their principles on others."

Mr PM...you are out of line and I agree to disagree with you
I sometimes think that whatever happens, happens for a reason. This is one instance, I beg to disagree...bloody hell.
