SEREMBAN: Those responsible for failing to execute the King's orders to table and debate all Emergency Ordinances in Parliament must resign, says Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan.

The Umno deputy president said on Thursday (July 29) that these individuals must take responsibility as their actions tainted the sanctity of Parliament.

He said the announcement by Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Parliament and Law) Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan on Monday (July 26) that the Federal Government has decided to revoke all Emergency Ordinances effective July 21 also showed a blatant disregard for the King as it was made without His Majesty's consent.

"This episode has put a permanent black mark on... Malaysian parliamentary democracy.

"They did not carry out His Majesty’s specific decree for the proposal to repeal all Emergency Ordinances to be tabled and debated in Parliament.

"The despicable action of the government in this matter is unparliamentary, unconstitutional and has placed the honour and nobility of the Royal Institution in a bad light," he said.

The King had earlier expressed great disappointment with the government’s decision to revoke six Emergency Ordinances without his consent.

The King had also expressed dismay that the revocation of the ordinances was not presented in Parliament by the government.
