  • A new government can only move a motion to change the Speaker at the next sitting of Parliament.
    This illegitimate government does not have the balls to have a sitting to prove its majority, let alone change the Speaker.

  • Don't be a fool Annuar Musa. In order to replace the Speaker, you will need to put it to a vote in Parliament. If you have got a bogus majority, the chances your attempt to do so will succeed is zero. So the Belakang Pintu government may fall during this process. So don't talk big about something you cannot hope to achieve. Why do the rakyat end up with numb skulls like him?

  • Bersatu being the smaller component will soon be walled up and finished! I am sure UMNO who makes up the most MPs will ask for a change in the PM seat too.
