KUALA LUMPUR - Opposition Members of Parliament were stopped from bringing in some of their guests into Parliament here Tuesday.
In a chaotic morning at the Parliament building foyer, leaders from the Opposition negotiated with Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim to bring in non-governmental organisation representatives to their meeting.
PKR parliamentary whip Datuk Johari Abdul told reporters the Parliament management had also cancelled their booking for a meeting room, leading Opposition MPs to have an ad hoc meeting at the open space at the foyer.
During the negotiations with Shahidan, PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar mentioned former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed as their guest.
After a short discussion, Shahidan gave permission for PKR leader Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail to have their meeting at the open space.
