PETALING JAYA: The upcoming Parliament meeting will reconvene on May 18, says Speaker Tan Sri Mohamad Ariff Md Yusof.

"I received the letter last night. The press statement will be released this morning (March 4).

"No meeting on March 9. The new date for the opening ceremony of Parliament is May 18," he was quoted as saying by Malay daily Berita Harian on Wednesday (March 4) morning.

Previously, the first meeting of Parliament in 2020 was scheduled to begin on March 9.

The upcoming Parliamentary meeting will be heavily watched, as Pakatan Harapan is expected to table a no-confidence vote against its former ally and newly appointed Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's sudden resignation as prime minister last week triggered a political turmoil which eventually saw the Pakatan government being replaced by Perikatan Nasional, which consists of Barisan Nasional, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia and PAS.
