Bakri MP Er Teck Hwa has stirred up trouble – and highlighted the somewhat ridiculous game Pakatan Rakyat are playing in Parliament. The second-term DAP backbencher raised eyebrows Tuesday when he appeared at the briefing for the new Parliamentary session – in the midst of a well-publicised Pakatan boycott.
Er, who is considered a dogged and well-meaning fellow by both sides of the political divide, offered different explanations. "It's my personal decision. As an MP, I just feel that I should know the guidelines for the new parliamentary session," he first said when asked about his attendance, noting that there may be new rules in this session.
