Melaka state assembly expected to convene mid-July


MELAKA: The Melaka state legislative assembly is expected to convene in the middle of July at the latest, after the actual date is gazetted, says Deputy Speaker Datuk Ghazale Muhamad.

He said the date must be gazetted at least two weeks prior to the state assembly sitting after obtaining the consent of the Melaka Yang di-Pertua Negeri, Tun Mohd Ali Rustam.

“We have discussed with the state assembly Speaker, Datuk Seri Ab Rauf Yusoh, about an audience with the Yang di-Pertua Negeri to secure his consent to reconvene,” he told reporters after the Agriculture and Food Industries Ministry’s Prihatin programme at the Melaka Zoo here yesterday.

Ghazale said it was necessary and important for the state assembly to convene as soon as possible because the members need to discuss and settle many issues and problems faced by the people.

Istana Negara, in a June 16 statement, said the King is of the view that Parliament should reconvene as soon as possible to allow the Emergency Ordinances and the National Recovery Plan to be debated by members of the Dewan Rakyat. — Bernama
