Meanwhile, The Malay Mail quoted Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail saying that Mansor might have suffered a syncopal attack when he was speaking during the proceedings.

She told reporters at the Parliament lobby, Mansor had regained consciousness, adding “I asked him if he knew who I was and he said he knew. His blood pressure and sugar levels went up and he will be referred to the hospital for a full check-up, according to procedures.”
