Who holds the record for speaking the least in Parliamentary history?
By Leong Hze Hian
According to a tabulation by Chinese papers Lian He Zao Bao, Jurong GRC PAP MP Rahayu Mahzam is the dumbest MP of 2017, making only 8 speeches in a year. Defending her “record”, the part-time MP on a S$192,000/year salary who works full-time as a lawyer told reporters that she does not see the need to repeat questions filed by others:
“Most of my questions are related to the law profession, and I would normally ensure that my questions have not been raised by others.” The Chinese papers did not give a ranking of who spoke the least as the data is highly embarrassing to the ruling party government.
The list of most vocal MPs are as follow:
1) WP NCMP Leon Perera (151 times) 2) PAP MP Louis Ng (103 times) 3) WP NCMP Dennis Tan (94 times) 4) WP NCMP Daniel Goh (83 times)
