KUALA LUMPUR:There is no need to call for an emergency session of Parliament because the next session is soon anyway, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said.
He told this to reporters Thursday after the Umno supreme council at PWTC.
Earlier on Thursday, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had told reporters at a press conference at the PKR headquarters that he had sent a letter to the Prime Minister requesting for an emergency session of Parliament to be held by Sept 23 to deliberate on a motion of no-confidence against Abdullah’s leadership.
The Dewan Rakyat is scheduled to resume its sitting on Oct 13.
To a question on whether Anwar would be arrested under the ISA, the Prime Minister said there was no suggestion from him to use the ISA on anyone. [more]
