PETALING JAYA: Tan Sri Annuar Musa has hinted that the government has a solution to resolve the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances issue.

The Federal Territories Minister said this solution would take into account the views of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

Annuar claimed that there was no constitutional crisis, and that the government had a good relationship with the King.

“We are confident that the King does not like anyone taking advantage of the situation by spicing it up with political flavours for their own agendas,” he said in a Facebook post on Monday (Aug 2).

He did acknowledge that it was clear that the King wanted the revocation of the ordinances done via its annulment in Parliament.

He said that now that the Emergency was over, Parliament was reconvened in line with the Rulers wishes.

He added that the Cabinet and the King would always discuss with one another in regards to the administration of the country in accordance with the laws and Federal Constitution.

Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah on Thursday (July 29) said the government’s decision to revoke six Emergency Ordinances was made without his consent.

In a statement issued by Istana Negara, the King also felt “greatly disappointed” that the revocation of the ordinances was not tabled in Parliament by the government.

Minister in the Prime Ministers Department Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan was singled out in the statement for misleading the Parliament on the annulment of the Emergency Ordinances.

In response, the government said that all actions taken in relation to the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances (EO) were done in accordance with the Federal Constitution and the rule of law.
