COMMENT | So, Dr Mahathir Mohamad's motion of no-confidence against Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin is accepted by the Dewan Rakyat speaker. Now, despite Muhyiddin’s desperate attempt to limit the parliamentary session to one day, the sitting on May 18 may decide the longevity of his prime ministership.

On May 7, 2009, Pakatan Rakyat’s Perak legislative speaker V Sivakumar was forcibly removed from the legislature to protect BN’s Menteri Besar Zambry Abdul Kadir from a vote of no-confidence. Then, BN still solidly controlled the federal government.
