Langkawi MP says sorry for ‘wear nothing’ comment

KUALA LUMPUR: MP Datuk Mohd Suhaimi Abdullah of Langkawi has expressed regret for his sexist remark he made last month about a member of the cabinet.

Mohd Suhaimi apologized to MPs and the president of Dewan Rakyat Tan Sri Johari Abdul, although he did not specify the name of Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, to whom the remark was aimed.

“I want to apologise for the error I made on October 26 during my 2024 Budget speech. He informed the Dewan Rakyat on Thursday, Nov. 9, “I apologize to President Tan Sri and MPs for my offensive and hurtful statement.”

As a member of parliament hailing from the fabled island, I want to make it clear how much I love Langkawi. He continued, “Perceptions and issues pertaining to Langkawi and its people should not be dismissed or trivialized.

On October 26, after Kok inquired as to whether she may wear shorts on the vacation island, Mohd Suhaimi informed her that he could travel to Langkawi even if she had nothing with her.

In addition, he said he was curious to know what Kok would be like in Langkawi.

Kok’s colleagues DAP MPs, Young Syefura Othman (PH-Bentong) and Lim Lip Eng (PH-Kepong), filed two resolutions to send him to the Rights and Privileges Committee after he received criticism from a number of parties for being made fun of. Congress
