UPDATED KUALA LUMPUR: The motion to refer Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim to the Rights and Privileges Committee over his "1Malaysia-One Israel" jibe has been passed.
Earlier, opposition MPs raised various technical arguments and Standing Orders to stop it.
Anwar, who is facing the possibility of being suspended from Parliament, is however unperturbed.
Speaking at a ceramah in Hulu Selangor last night, he said: Tomorrow (today) I will face the parlimentary committee.
“They may suspend me... I won’t be surprised. They have already hung me, caught me and stripped me, all these to disgrace me so that I will give in to them,” he said.
He added that the BN's extreme actions were aimed at stopping him from revealing the government’s relationship with the Jews and Zionists.
Eight MPs, four from Barisan Nasional and four from Pakatan Rakyat, have debated the motion in Parliament.
Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Mohd Nazri Aziz had tabled the motion to refer Anwar to the Rights and Privileges Committee for saying that there is similarity in the concept of 1Malaysia and One Israel and for suggesting the possibility that PR firm Apco Worldwide may be responsible for these ideas.
Nazri's motion, under Standing Order 36 (12), was supported by Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin.
