Outgoing Deputy Speaker Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said has pushed for the government to appoint an Opposition MP to take over her post in the Dewan Rakyat.

She added that the motion must be made by the government as a gesture by the Prime Minister to get the ball rolling for parliamentary reform.

The Pengerang MP said this in a forum hosted by the Jeffrey Cheah Institute on Southeast Asia on Thursday (Aug 26).
