KUALA LUMPUR: The FT Pakatan Harapan Youth has urged the police to take action against the Prime Minister, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Parliament and Law), as well as the Dewan Rakyat Speaker for allegedly repealing the Emergency Ordinances without the consent of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

Its chief Asmaaliff Abdul Adam claimed the act of the Perikatan Nasional leadership was “arrogant” and “unethical” for telling the Dewan Rakyat that the Emergency Ordinances were repealed on July 21.

On Thursday (July 29), Istana Negara released a strongly-worded statement saying that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong had expressed great disappointment with the government's decision to revoke six Emergency Ordinances without His Majesty's consent.

The Royal rebuke came following a bombshell announcement by the Minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Law and Parliament) Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan in Parliament on July 26 that the government had revoked all six Emergency Ordinances on July 21.

Following the statement by Istana Negara, the Prime Minister's Office issued a response saying that the government is of the view that the action taken related to the revocation of the ordinances is proper, and in accordance with the Federal Constitution and the rule of law.
