Why Reconvening Parliament Is Crucial

There have been growing demands for Parliament to reconvene urgently, with Deputy Speaker Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said and MPs from different political parties joining in on the calls. We discuss the implications of Parliament's closure during the pandemic, then talk about why allowing Parliament to function is crucial to ensure accountability in government spending. Finally, we look at the Bills that have been put on hold over the past year.
