KUALA LUMPUR, April 26 — Senator Tunku Abdul Aziz Ibrahim from the DAP has submitted a motion to the Senate to raise the matter of television producer Joshua Wong’s resignation from NTV7 over alleged political interference by the prime minister’s wife.

Tunku Abdul Aziz raised the emergency motion at 1.48pm on Friday but has yet to receive a response from the Speaker.

“I was hoping to raise this as a motion in the Senate but I’ve had no response so far,” he said in a press conference in Parliament.

“I think these allegations are very serious and the resignation of Joshua Wong as a result of what he claimed to be political interference is very serious indeed, especially also when the Prime Minister’s wife was involved.”

Wong resigned on April 20 claiming “overzealous self-censorship and government interference” from the Prime Minister’s Department and Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, the prime minister’s wife.

The senior producer alleged that he was told not to discuss political issues or invite opposition leaders on the show, “Editor’s Time”, a one-hour live discussion show that focuses on current affairs.

He also claimed a special Hulu Selangor by-election show, originally scheduled for April 22, was cancelled.

Tunku Abdul Aziz, who is DAP National Vice Chairman, called such interference in a democratic country “totally unacceptable”.

“It negates completely the concept of freedom of the press, and I believe that this is something the people of this country will not accept.”

He added that he found Rosmah’s role a “curious one”.

“She has no official standing and yet it is quite obvious, not only in this particular instance, but also in other cases where her heavy presence is felt.

“It looks as if the prime minister has his own kitchen cabinet. If she is going to play this sort of role she should be appointed through the Senate to the Cabinet so that she will have proper standing.

The founder of Transparency International Malaysia also stressed that those who are not elected public officials should not have a hand in running the country.

“I think we must clearly defined roles for members of the government... others who are not elected representatives, who are not members of the Cabinet, I think should stay out of national affairs.”

Tunku Abdul Aziz said he hoped the Speaker will allow him to raise the motion as it “[reflects upon] the reputation of Malaysia as a democracy”.

He cautioned, “You may go telling the world that we practice democracy, that we subscribe to human rights, but this is [a] basic denial of one of the great freedoms of a democratic country — the freedom of the press.

“I hope I’ll be given a chance to raise this motion.”
