Dewan Rakyat Speaker Datuk Azhar Azizan Harun ejected Kepong MP Lim Lip Eng from the Dewan Rakyat on Thursday, after the latter used the word bodoh (stupid in Malay).

Lim said it was “stupid” of Dewan Rakyat Deputy Speaker Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said not to ask Bintulu MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing to retract his remark about Health director-general Tan Sri Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah being “afraid to die” for handling the Covid-19 pandemic.
