Modified 15 May 2020, 6:14 am

The validity of one-day Dewan Rakyat sitting that has been shortened to exclude any debate session may be challenged in court, says lawyer Haniff Khatri Abdulla.

In a statement, he pointed out that the last parliament sitting was held on Dec 5, 2019, and thus the next one must be held within six-month, which falls by this June 5, as required under the House's rules.
