An oversight? No official invitation for Azizah & spouse (Anwar)

While other members of Parliament and their spouses have received official invitations for the opening of the 12th Parliament session by the Yang diPertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal tomorrow, Opposition Leader Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan ismail has not received hers.

Dr Azizah is Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) President and Permatang Pauh MP. Her husband, Datuk Anwar Ibrahim, is PKR advisor and de facto leader of Pakatan Rakyat.

Newly sworn-in Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia said he would look into the matter.

"If I think that this needs to be corrected, I will correct it. I've just been appointed speaker... but the invitations were sent out earlier. We will invite those who should be invited," he told reporters here Monday. (read here )

PKR Vice-President Mohamed Azmin Ali had earlier told reporters that Dr Azizah had not received any official invitation card, unlike other members of parliament who had received theirs, with invitations extended to their spouses.

Azmin, who is PKR MP for Gombak, said the issue has been referred to Parliament secretariat.

(Is Dr Azizah the only one who has been overlooked? An oversight? Really? If it is, then it's kinda strange innit? Firstly, she is a Member of Parliament. She aint a new face. It's her third term as an MP and she IS the Opposition Leader in the House. And, what does the Speaker mean by "We will invite those who should be invited"? Is Anwar the reason?)

It is so telling. They are so scared shit of Anwar. How could they (the secretariat) do this to Wan Azizah. How could they single her out and not invite the spouse?

How low can theygo?

They play dirty with ill intention. There is so much bad blood between them and Anwar.
