KUALA LUMPUR: Uncertainty appears to be plaguing the ongoing special Parliament sitting after the House was adjourned for the third time.
The adjournment was announced by Deputy Speaker Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said in the House at 2.30pm.
"Meetings are still ongoing regarding the order of business for Thursday (July 29) and in line with Standing Orders 12(2), proceedings will be postponed till 3.30pm," she said in the House.
Her announcement was met with disbelief by many Opposition MPs, with RSN Rayer (PH-Jelutong) questioning why the Parliament sitting was further adjourned.
“Why, Speaker? This cannot be it, Speaker. Why are you running away?” he said to Azalina as she left the Dewan.
Teo Nie Ching (PH-Kulai) demanded the Speaker resign, saying there was nothing else to discuss.
Cha Kee Chin (PH-Rasah) asked if there was a big announcement waiting to be made.
Earlier, the Parliament sitting was temporarily adjourned for 15-minutes at around 12.30 following the statement by the Palace that accused the government of contravening the Constitution over the Emergency revocation.
In the statement, the King also expressed great disappointment with the government's decision to revoke six Emergency Ordinances without his consent.
The King also expressed dismay that the revocation of the ordinances was not presented in Parliament by the government.
After the 15-minutes adjournment, Deputy Speaker Datuk Mohd Rashid Hasnon announced that the House will be adjourned for another 1.5 hours until 2.30pm on Thursday (July 29).
The five-day special sitting that began on Monday (July 26) will end next Monday (Aug 2).
