KUALA LUMPUR – The Member of Parliament (MP) of Nibong Tebal, Associate Professor Datuk Dr Mansor Othman collapsed while debating the 2020 Budget at the Parliament today.
Earlier the MP of Pontian, Datuk Ahmad Maslan was asking about the non-performing loans (NPL) of Tekun and the efforts to increase the skills of the entrepreneurs.
While answering the question, Mansor shared about the credit discipline and digital economy, however, his speech was slurred and he suddenly collapsed.
He was then assisted by the MP of Subang, Wong Chen and the Deputy Speaker of Dewan Rakyat, Nga Kor Ming, requested the assistance of medical doctors among the MPs to help check on Mansor.
Several minutes later a doctor-on-call at the Parliament entered the Dewan Rakyat to treat the Nibong Tebal MP.
The Dewan Rakyat sitting resumed and Kor Ming requested the MPs to pray for Mansor’s speedy recovery.
He also advised the MPs to care for their health, sleep well and drink plenty of water.
“Do not debate until midnight. Take care of your health. This is not the first case. It happened to YB Sepang before and now, Nibong Tebal,” he said. – MalaysiaGazette
