Despite unhappiness over the GE13 results, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has confirmed that all 89 Pakatan Rakyat MPs will attend the swearing-in of Parliament on June 24.
The Opposition leader said that there was a misunderstanding over the matter, as they only decided to boycott the parliament briefing.
"We believe in the spirit of parliamentary democracy and have decided to attend the first day of Parliament," he told a press conference at the PKR headquarters on Wednesday.
It was reported that All Pakatan MPs except one, Bakri MP Er Teck Hwa, boycotted the briefing in Parliament in protest of the recent election results.
Anwar said the Opposition unanimously nominated former federal court judge Datuk Abdul Kadir Sulaiman as its choice for Dewan Rakyat Speaker as a sign that they would not boycott the sitting.
