Nazri soon backed down, saying he had meant an office although he stated jabatan , which means department; pejabat is the Malay word for office and not Department Jabatan of Parliament. The New Straits Times , a newspaper owned by the United Malays National Organisation a key member of the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition wrote in an editorial that "ministerial authority was established over Parliament the building" and not Parliament the institution and that "[i]f the new 'department' and its management and staff do their jobs well, the rakyat people would have even more of a right to expect their MPs to do theirs by turning up for Dewan sessions, preserving that quaint tradition of the quorum, on behalf of their constituencies.
Lim was dissatisfied with such a response and went ahead with a "Save Parliament" roundtable attended by several MPs including Nazri and non-governmental organisations NGOs. Although Lim thanked Nazri the only Barisan Nasional MP in attendance , he stated that the proposed department remained a threat to Parliament's independence, and had to be "seen in the context of the relentless erosion and diminution of parliamentary powers and functions by the Executive".

In a statement, the roundtable found that "Nazri's explanations were not convincing" and urged "Nazri to halt all implementation of the Cabinet decision to establish a Department or Office of Parliament until MPs and the civil society could approve and support the proposal".
On 13 October in the Dewan Rakyat, Ahmad Shabery Cheek BN MP for Kemaman tabled a motion to reinstate the Parliamentary Services Act which would provide for a parliamentary service independent of the Public Service Department currently handling parliamentary affairs that had been repealed upon the unilateral suggestion of then- Speaker Zahir Ismail in Nazri responded that the motion would have to be referred to the House Committee for review.
Shahrir Abdul Samad , chairman of the Barisan Nasional Backbenchers Club , then insisted that the Act be immediately restored without being referred to the Committee, and called on all MPs who supported the motion to stand. Several immediately stood, with some Opposition MPs shouting "bangun, bangun" stand up, stand up.
However, several ministers, including Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar who had supported repealing the Act in remained seated. Nazri then stated that the matter would remain with the Committee, as he did not want it dealt with in a slipshod manner. The following day, Lim called on Kamaruddin Mohd Baria, who would have taken the post of Parliament Head of Administration, not to report for duty in his new post. Meanwhile, the Dewan Negara House Committee held a specially-convened meeting, which called on the government to revive the Act and to call off all moves to change the administrative structure of Parliament.
The President of the Dewan Negara , Abdul Hamid Pawanteh , also stated that he had not been informed "at all" by the government regarding the new department or office of Parliament. However, on 17 October, Nazri refused to budge on the issue of the new post of "Parliament Head of Administration" which would make the current Parliamentary Secretary, who is accountable to Parliament and not the executive, redundant.
He also stated that the Parliamentary Services Act would have to go through the Dewan Rakyat House Committee and endorsed by the Dewan Rakyat before being sent to the cabinet for approval. In his blog, Lim slammed Nazri for overlooking "the fact that when the Parliamentary Privilege Act was repealed in , it was not at the recommendation of the Dewan Rakyat House Committee but merely at the unilateral request of the Speaker.
The Dewan Negara Malay for Senate , literally National Council is the upper house of the Parliament of Malaysia, consisting of 70 senators of whom 26 are elected by the state legislative assemblies , with two senators for each state, while the other 44 are appointed by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong King , including four of whom are appointed to represent the federal territories. The Dewan Negara usually reviews legislation that has been passed by the lower house, the Dewan Rakyat.

All bills must usually be passed by both the Dewan Rakyat and the Dewan Negara the Senate , before they are sent to the King for royal assent. However, if the Dewan Negara rejects a bill, it can only delay the bill's passage by a maximum of a year before it is sent to the King.
The Dewan Rakyat Malay for House of Representatives , literally People's Hall is the lower house of the Parliament of Malaysia, consisting of members elected during elections from federal constituencies drawn by the Election Commission. The Dewan Rakyat usually proposes legislation through a draft known as a 'bill'. All bills must usually be passed by both the Dewan Rakyat House of Representatives and the Dewan Negara , before they are sent to the King for royal assent.
