PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan (pic) must apologise to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong for announcing the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances prematurely, says Padang Rengas Umno MP Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz.
He said the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department could do so after he was discharged from the hospital where he has been warded since last Friday due to heart problems.
“Once he recovers, Takiyuddin must apologise to the King because it was his mistake.
“He shouldn’t have prematurely announced the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances.
“This is in order to ensure political harmony,” he said yesterday.
Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah last Thursday 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.
Takiyuddin was singled out in the statement for misleading the Parliament on the annulment of the Emergency Ordinances.
Meanwhile, Takiyuddin has reportedly been admitted to hospital due to a heart ailment.
On Facebook, PAS deputy president Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man said the PAS secretary-general had safely undergone a health assessment and, he was told by a doctor, that a stent was inserted into a clogged heart vessel.
“Alhamdulillah it went smoothly, and he is expected to be discharged in a day or two. Let’s pray that he will quickly recover,” he said on his Facebook page yesterday.
Takiyuddin’s office did not respond to media queries on his condition.
