When the case of Batu MP being fined Rm2k happened, many thought that it was an UMNO’s expedient political decision to not push for the MP’s ouster and not to go for by-election at that time. But they forget that after the deadline for holding by-election-as has happened now the party can change its mind and push for the MP’s ouster-as could have also happened now! So : should the politicians follow the law-and at least get someone else to replace the Batu MP, or lost 1 MP in Parliament?
Actually we had raised the issue at that time-no matter how unpopular it was. So did Karpal the lawyer.
