SEREMBAN — Dec. 17, 2018: The opposition walked out of the Negri Sembilan state assembly today after speaker Zulkefly Omar did not allow the tabling of a motion to discuss the state’s stand on the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD).

All the 16 opposition assemblymen left after Zulkefly did not allow Rantau assemblyman Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan to table the motion, saying that the ICERD issue had been resolved at the federal level by the prime minister.

The house then continued with the budget session.

Mohamad later questioned the openness of the Pakatan Harapan government. — Bernama
