PM: This is in line with King’s decree, Federal Constitution

PETALING JAYA: A motion to debate and annul the Emergency Ordinances will be tabled in the upcoming Parliament meeting in September, says Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

He added this was also in accordance with Article 150(3) of the Federal Constitution, where the debates and annulments of the Emergency Ordinances will be brought in Parliament during a 15-day meeting.

“In line with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s decree and provisions under Article 150(3) of the Federal Constitution, a motion to debate and annul the Emergency Ordinances will be brought up in the Parliament meeting scheduled this September.

“It is hoped that this motion which will be discussed in the Cabinet meeting on Wednesday will help to solve the ongoing polemics concerning the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances,” he said in a statement posted on Facebook yesterday.

Muhyiddin said according to the Federal Constitution, the end of the Proclamation of Emergency on Aug 1 has made the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances academic.

A statement by Istana Negara on July 29 stated that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah had expressed disappointment with the government’s decision to revoke six Emergency Ordinances without his consent.

In the statement, the King also expressed dismay that the revocation of the ordinances was not presented in Parliament by the government.

In response, the Prime Minister’s Office in a statement on July 29, said Muhyiddin had advised the King to annul the Emergency Ordinances even before the special Parliament sitting convened on July 26 and in accordance with Article 40(1) of the Constitution, the King acts on the advice of the Prime Minister.

The first meeting of the fourth session of the 14th Parliament will sit for 15 days beginning Sept 6 until 30.
