SEREMBAN: The Negri Sembilan legislative assembly, which last met in December, will reconvene on Sept 3, says Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Aminuddin Harun.
He said the meeting will be held over four days.
“The first day will be the opening of the assembly by the Yang di-Pertuan Besar of Negri Sembilan Tuanku Muhriz Tuanku Munawir.
“The three remaining days from Sept 6 have been reserved for debate on the Royal Address and the tabling of several Bills,” he told reporters after chairing the state exco meeting at Wisma Negri on Wednesday (July 14).
On June 23, Aminuddin said that the state legislative assembly was scheduled to reconvene in the first week of August.
Asked then if the state government had been planning to hold a hybrid session, Aminuddin said all assemblymen would be required to be physically present.
On June 17, Speaker Datuk Zulkefly Mohamad Omar said the state government would heed the advice of the King and the Malay Rulers and reconvene its legislative assembly soonest.
This, he said, was important to allow assemblymen to discuss and debate issues, particularly efforts taken by the state administration to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Equally important, Zulkefly said, was for all assemblymen to know how the rakyat’s money had been spent in recent months.
