Several Umno assemblypersons launched a boycott against state executive councillor Dr Afif Bahardin at the Penang Legislative Assembly sitting today.

The assemblypersons left the House when Afif (PKR-Seberang Jaya) was winding up his speech on the 2017 Penang budget, which was tabled by Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng on Nov 15.

Shariful Azhar Othman (BN-Bertam) and Muhammad Farid Saad (BN-Pulau Betong) admitted to the boycott although they claimed the decision was an individual one.
