923 - Emergency Session of Parliament

source : TheStar

Opposition Lea­der Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said the only way for Pakatan Rakyat to form the Federal Government was via an emergency session of Parlia­ment to be convened by Tuesday for a no-confidence motion to be tabled against Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
The date is a day before Anwar, who is the Parti Keadilan Rakyat de facto leader, goes to court to face a sodomy charge,
He insisted yesterday that Pakatan Rakyat had the numbers to form a new government, adding that the names of the Barisan Nasional MPs who were ready to switch sides would be revealed in Parliament


Only the Prime Minister can call for an emergency parliamentary session, and even then he needs to give a 14-day notice.
Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia said this was clearly stated in Article 11(3) of the Parliament Standing Orders.
“Only the Prime Minister has the power to call for an emergency meeting. There is no other way. It is only the Government of the day who can do it,” he said.
