|A lot of shouting in the Dewan. It's pandemonium in there.|
|Wouldn't it be a lot easier to have fresh state elections?|
|It looks like most of the mikes are still shut.|
|The Pakatan Aduns are asking Ganesan to leave. They say he is not authorised to be a Speaker and point to his name tag which says only "pegawai". A short scuffle breaks out briefly but it is over now.|
|Ganesan's makeshift "Speaker's" table is in the middle of the aisle. He didn't have a normal seat in the Dewan like the others as he is not an Adun. Before he was appointed, he was sitting in a corridor at the back of the Dewan. When he was "appointed" Speaker, he took a position at a table on the aisle. Now, after pressure from Pakatan Aduns, Ganesan moves to a seat near Zambry.|
