The “Frog” Poem

Along with her speech, she recited an original poem in parliament to insinuate the MPs who were hopping parties.

The poem reads:

“Lompat si katak lompat (Jump frog jump)

Lompat di dalam perigi (Jump in the well)

Lompat jangan tak lompat (Jump, don’t stop jumping)

Nanti tak sempat menjadi” (Before it’s too late)

Let the people choose

However, she added that some MPs were forced to change parties.

“While some MPs hopped willingly, some were forced to do so because they were expelled from their party.”

Thus, Azalina suggested the recall election mechanism.

“Let our people vote whether they still want the MPs who hopped party to serve them.”

In addition, she said that since the government and Pakatan Harapan signed a memorandum for political stability, the establishment of the “Anti-Party Hopping Act” should be in line with the principles of democracy.
