Nazri mistakenly counted as supporting bloc vote when he was absent (1)

The number of parliamentarians who passed the Finance Ministry's allocations in a bloc vote called at committee stage debates yesterday in the Dewan Rakyat has been corrected from 107 to 106. This comes after Tasek Gelugor MP Shahbudin Yahya as the lawmaker-in-charge of counting the votes for Bloc C was found to have mistakenly marked Nazri Abdul Aziz (BN-Padang Rengas) as being in support, when in fact the latter was absent. Dewan Rakyat deputy speaker Rashid Hasnon said the number of parliamentarians counted as absent has also been corrected from 18 to 19. "Meanwhile, 95 members remain against it," said Rashid who read out a notice by Dewan Rakyat Speaker Azhar Azizan Harun.
