Pagi yang disengajai tidak sempurna hari ini…
Ramai petugas dan pihak media tidak dapat masuk ke Parlimen seperti biasa hari ini. Keadaan jalanraya ke Parlimen sesak tiba-tiba dengan adanya road blocks yang menjadi satu-satunya penyebab traffic jams hari ini.
Kehairanan yang bertimpa-timpa bila ada di antara Ahli Parlimenpun belum dapat masuk ke Parlimen?
Apa dah jadi?

|Police roadblocks cause gridlock in KL|
|Jul 14, 08 10:50am|
|Police roadblocks along major roads leading to Parliament have resulted in massive traffic jams in Kuala Lumpur this morning.
The roadblocks are in anticipation of protests ahead of a possible debate of no confidence in Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi today.
The Pakatan Rakyat opposition, which gave notice for an urgent motion to debate Abdullah’s leadership last Friday, has however denied that it had called for a protest.
PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim, along with party supporters, have earlier expressed their intention to go to Parliament to hear the no-confidence debate today.
However, the police yesterday have obtained a court order barring Anwar from the vicinity of the Parliament today.
The court order will allow the police to arrest on sight if Anwar and opposition supporters are spotted within five kilometres of Parliament.
House speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia will decide today whether to allow the debate to go ahead.
A number of journalists who have arrived in Parliament this morning were also stopped from entering the Parliament building.
They include foreign reporters and those who work for international news agencies.
Those barred are said to be without the official Information Ministry press accreditation.
Police presence is heavy in and around the Parliament but no demonstrators are in sight.
