KUALA LUMPUR: The police has reassured the public that security and public order will be maintained.
Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani said the public need not be anxious.
“We will also increase our monitoring to ensure the well-being of the community,” he said in a statement yesterday.
This comes after political uncertainty emerged following Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah’s statement that the government’s decision to revoke six Emergency Ordinances was made without his consent.
In a statement issued by Istana Negara on Thursday, Sultan Abdullah also felt “greatly disappointed” that the ordinances were not tabled for debate in Parliament by the government.
Following the statement, confusion reigned in the Dewan Rakyat with several unprecedented abrupt adjournments in the wake of the royal rebuke.
For several hours, Parliament was in a lockdown when it was announced that two new Covid-19 cases had been detected and no one could leave pending RTK-Antigen saliva tests on all of them.
Acryl Sani also advised the public to always follow the standard operating procedure set by the National Security Council in their everyday lives.
“We must all do our part to curb the spread of Covid-19,” he added.
