MP SPEAKS | House speaker Azhar Azizan Harun took everyone by surprise when at the launch of the book, ‘Muhyiddin Yassin: Leading a Nation in Unprecedented Crisis’ by Abdul Mutalib Razak, he described the country’s eighth prime minister as a “reformist” who “many choose to overlook, for whatever reason they may have”.
