NST | Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has started debating the Budget 2008.no2umno - Menurut kata DS Anwar. Pengulungan dan perbahasan tentang belanjaan, PM atau TPM perlu hadir. Tapi hari ini, batang hidung kedua kedua pemimpin UMNO tak kelihatan. Mungkin raya tak habis lagi. Dan yang menarik ... DS Anwar cadangkan pegawai pegawai mengambil tempat perwakilan untuk bersidang kerana kedatangan sungguh tidak membanggakan. Rasanya ... BN dan UMNO akan sakit telinga sepanjang persidangan hari ini.
He began a little after 11am, and the speech marks a new chapter in Anwar's political career in the House - it is his first speech as a member of the opposition benches.
His earlier speeches were during his time in the Barisan Nasional but always as a member of the government.
Anwar Ibrahim made his debut in parliament in 1982 as a parliamentary secretary in the Prime Minister's Department.
