This is precedent to constituency amendments by ejecting opposition members of parliament through kangaroo parliament.
I dislike Pakatan Rakyat, but will still vote them in the next GE.

KUALA LUMPUR: Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was suspended from Parliament over the Apco issue, while the motion to cite Pakatan Rakyat MPs Karpal Singh, R. Sivarasa and Azmin Ali for contempt was also passed.
All four were suspended for six months.
Earlier, Opposition MPs staged a walk-out when Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Abd Aziz began to read a second motion to cite three MPs for contempt.
Amidst shouts, the first motion to suspend Anwar was pronounced passed without debate.
Karpal (DAP-Bukit Gelugor) said they would take case to court.
“There’s a precedent in the case of Gobind Singh (Deo). It’s so blatant that it cannot be defended,” he said.
Earlier Thursday, pandemonium ruled on the morning of Parliament’s last session for the year as Opposition MPs protested loudly against the motion to suspend four Opposition leaders.
