A senior Umno lawmaker struck a nerve during debates in Parliament on Monday after claiming that DAP received support from the Communists in the past.

The issue was sparked by Tan Sri Annuar Musa (BN-Ketereh) who said it was only natural for Umno to react after being labelled “Taliban” following its recent cooperation pact with PAS.

However, Dewan Rakyat Speaker Datuk Mohamad Arrif Md Yusof said he would make a ruling on whether Annuar should retract his statement after going through the Hansard on Tuesday.
