JOHOR BARU: The state government will identify a suitable date soon to reconvene the state assembly.
Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Hasni Mohammad (pic) said the state government welcomed the views from all parties, from government to Opposition leaders, in handling the Covid-19 pandemic.
"We know that the Emergency is scheduled to end in August but we will find a suitable date for the Johor assembly to convene soon based on the state's laws," he said.
"From those days, Johor has always emphasised the aspect of togetherness," he added.
Hasni hoped that their efforts would receive the support of all parties.
He stressed that the special meeting by the Malay Rulers on Wednesday (June 16) had made a clear stand with regard to the Emergency Ordinance and the National Recovery Plan in dealing with the health crisis.
"As the head of the Johor state government, I uphold and welcome the decree by the Rulers," he said.
Hasni noted that he had, based on the Johor Sultan's advice, held a virtual meeting with all the state assemblymen in Johor recently.
Johor has 56 state assemblymen and 26 MPs.
