PARLIAMENT Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak may not like the opposition walking out on his Budget 2017 speech, but he too doesn't seem to provide a good example.

This was pointed out by opposition leader Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail (PKR-Permatang Pauh) in her speech during the debate on Budget 2017 today.

Wan Azizah said that when her husband Anwar Ibrahim was finance minister, not once did he miss the speech by the opposition leader, who is always the first person to debate the budget speech.
