Local Government and Provincial Councils Minister Faizer Mustapha said yesterday he submitted a request to the Steering Committee on Constitutional reforms that the post of chairman and deputy chairman of provincial councils be re-designated as those of Speaker and Deputy Speaker. 

He said the proposal was mooted by a certain organization.   

Currently, the provincial council chairman carries out functions similar to that of the Speaker in Parliament.
