Ministers at PM's house for informal discussion, no one resigning, say sources

PETALING JAYA: The informal meeting at Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin's house was just to discuss the decision of the King today (Oct 25), says a source.

"There were a few of us here at his residence earlier before the Palace made the announcement. We stayed on and a few more arrived later to have an informal discussion on what transpired today, as we will have a special Cabinet meeting tomorrow too.

"The Prime Minister is collected and calm. No one is resigning over the decision by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. We will issue a statement Monday (Oct 26)," said a source who was at the meeting.

Among the ministers spotted were Senior Minister Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan, Minister in the Prime Minister’s department (Religious Affairs) Datuk Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri and Transport Minister Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong.

The ministers started leaving Muhyiddin's Bukit Damansara residence at about 10.45pm.

Others spotted leaving his residences were Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Economic Affairs) Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed, and Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rina Harun.

Others were Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri M. Saravanan, Senior Minister (Defense) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, deputy federal territories Datuk Seri Dr Edmund Santhara Kumar, Special Functions Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan Md Yusof, Higher Education Minister Datuk Noraini Ahmad, and Education Minister Dr Mohd Radzi Md Jidin.

Many ministers believed to be travelling out of Muhyiddin’s residences could not be recognised due to heavily tinted windows.

Earlier Sunday, the King decided that the current Covid-19 pandemic situation does not yet warrant a state of emergency, as decided by the Cabinet.

On Friday, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and several ministers presented the King with the Emergency plan at Istana Abdul Aziz Indera Mahkota in Kuantan.
