Selangor State Assembly (28 June - 8 July 2013)

I've just posted 2 reports on this blog the questions I raised to the Selangor State Government and the answers given (here) as well as the transcript of the speech I delivered (here) in the Selangor State Assembly Session held from 28 June to 8 July 2013 as YB Damansara Utama. 

The speech basically covered 2 parts -  constituency issues and state policies. Constituency related issues include crime and security, traffic congestion, local council services and flash floods while state policies include execution of freedom of information enactment for better transparency, parliamentary reform for better democracy and institute of policy research for better policy-making in the long run. 

It is important that we keep our government in check as the backbenchers so Pakatan Rakyat government will continue to improve on our competency, transparency and accountability. 

Unfortunately, I didn't gather many pictures in the State Assembly to share with you. Here are some of them. 

This is the picture I took from my seat. :)  

Here is a picture taken by Sin Chew of Adun Tanjung Sepat, Ir Mohd Haslin, and I at the State Assembly. He's going to be my 'neighbour' in the State Assembly for the next 4 to 5 years! :) 

Here is a picture taken by my intern through live-stream while I was delivering my first speech in the state assembly. Just in case you wonder, yes, I wear glasses, sometimes. :)
