Product Description

The Speaker of the Dewan Rakyat, despite the name, is seldom heard.
In this brief recollection of his short tenure as the Dewan Rakyat Speaker, Tan Sri Ariff Yusof, reveals his side of the story, by dissecting the events and procedures of Parliament while providing an insider’s view of the unprecedented political developments that led to the fall of the Pakatan Harapan government in 2020 and his eventual removal. Meanwhile, a global pandemic starts to rage and met with faltering response from the government, and a suspension of Parliament.
Can we expect change to come from the Parliament, in the current order of things? Is there political interest to find new ground to move beyond race and religion? Can a Speaker alone change how things are done, independent of the other branches of government?
Parliament, Unexpected brings readers through an autobiographical journey to understand the sources of our political dysfunction, and what needs to be done to reset and retell the Malaysian story for a fairer, kinder and more equitable tanah air for all.
Tan Sri ARIFF YUSOF was the Speaker of the Dewan Rakyat, Parliament of Malaysia from July 2018 to July 2020. From 2008 to 2015 he served as a Judicial Commissioner, High Court Judge and subsequently a Judge of the Court of Appeal, Malaysia.
