Monday's Much-awaited Opening Of New Parliament

By Kurniawati Kamarudin

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- With 90 new Members of Parliament making their debut at the Dewan Rakyat on Monday - the biggest ever number of new faces in the nation's parliamentary history - a great deal of excitement will be in the air as the brand new 'Yang Berhormats' feel their way and try to make their mark in the august House.

The opening of the 14th Parliament will also be a historic moment because for the first time in 60 years Barisan Nasional will sit on the opposition bench having been unseated by Pakatan Harapan in the 14th General Election on May 9.

All eyes will be on the PH MPs, who are the voice of the new Malaysia, as the people are eager to see their elected representatives in action in the Dewan Rakyat.

PROCEEDINGS TO START WITH APPOINTMENT OF SPEAKER

The first meeting of the first session of the 14th Parliament will run for 20 days between July 16 and Aug 16. The proceedings on the first day will begin with Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad tabling the first motion for the election of the Dewan Rakyat Speaker, whose identity has yet to be revealed.

Over the last three weeks, several names had cropped up as possible candidates for the post, including retired judge Datuk Mohamad Ariff Md Yusof who is being seen as the most qualified person for the crucial post.

Social Activist On Mission To Unify Community

By Kurniawati Kamarudin

KUALA SELANGOR ( Bernama) -- The blue Perodua Kelisa car may have seen better days but it is a familiar vehicle for the people residing in the poorer sections of Bestari Jaya.

Its owner Kumaran Nagapa is ever ready to ferry people, who cannot afford to take public transport, to the government hospital in Sungai Buloh for their follow-up appointments or treatments.

At other times, he can be seen running up and down the stairs at some government office or other in Kuala Selangor trying to get help to resolve a host of problems faced by the locals, with the most pressing ones relating to applications for identity cards and seeking aid from the Social Welfare Department and Selangor Zakat Centre.

During weekends, he will be busy conducting tutorial classes for primary school children at a centre located within the compound of Masjid Al Awwabim in Bestari Jaya.

Helping people in need has become the daily routine for this 40-year-old busy bee who chose to become a social activist about six years ago.
