Tighter control at Parliament building, says IGP

The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) will tighten its control at the Parliament Building to ensure smooth running of the swearing-in ceremony of Members of Parliament today.

Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said although the Parliament Building was open to the public, the police did not want any situation that could inconvenience the MPs to enter Dewan Rakyat.

"Of course we will ensure that the MPs' movement will not be disturbed by anything or anyone," he told reporters after attending the crime awareness campaign in Petaling Jaya.

All the 222 elected MPs will take their oath of office at the Dewan Rakyat today. The first meeting of the first term of the 13th Parliament will begin tomorrow until July 18, while the Senate sitting is scheduled to be held for nine days beginning June 25. - Bernama, June 24, 2013.
