Anwar – Sworn in as Opposition Leader

PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim is officially parliamentary opposition leader.

The newly-elected Permatang Pauh MP was sworn in this morning at the Dewan Rakyat.

Anwar arrived at Parliament at 8.55am and took his oath at 10.05am immediately after prayer recitals in the House.

Soon after, he took the seat reserved for the parliamentary opposition leader, vacated by his wife Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail. 

The opposition leader’s seat is directly opposite the prime minister’s seat in the 222-member Parliament.

    In the traditions of British Westminster Parliamentary we have just seen the sitting of the Loyal Opposition Leader of His Majesty Government.

    And to all Loyal Members of Parliament sitting opposite of the Loyal Opposition Leader, you are all welcome to walk across the DIVIDE of the Hall and simply stand IN FRONT of the rows of His Majesty Loyal Opposition.

    By doing so, you indicate to ALL voters and citizens of Malaysia that you all wish for a new Government of the People, by the People and for the People.

    Long Live Democracy !
