The Malaysian politics had once again descended into chaos after the Parliament reconvene and the Opposition leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had pushed for a no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin stating that he had lost the Member of Parliaments’ (MP) support for his government.
Despite the political uncertainties, the Inspector-General of Police, Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani has reassured the public that security and public order will be maintained.
According to The Star, Acryl Sani had urged the public to remain calm while the police ensures the nation’s security.
“We will also increase monitoring to ensure the well-being of the community,” he said in a statement on today (July 30).
In addition, he also advised the public to comply with the standard operating procedures (SOP) put in place by the National Security Council (MKN) to keep the spread of Covid-19 virus under control.
“We must all do our part to curb the spread of Covid-19.” he said.
The whole saga started after the de facto Law Minister Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan announced the revocation of the 6 Emergency Ordinances on 21 July, which the King later accused the Perikatan National (PN) government for making the decision without his consent.
In a statement issued by Istana Negara yesterday (29 July), the King had expressed his utmost disappointment that the ordinances were not tabled in Parliament by the government.
“Article 150(2b) read with Article 150(3) of the Federal Constitution clearly provides that the power to enact and repeal Emergency Ordinances rests with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.”
“In this regard, His Majesty expressed great displeasure at the July 26 statement in Parliament that the government had revoked all the Emergency Ordinances that the King had promulgated during the Emergency period, despite His Majesty having yet to give consent to the revocation.” the statement said.
At the same time, all MPs in the Dewan Rakyat had condemn both Muhyiddin and his government for being disobedient or treacherous to the Royals.
Meanwhile, the Parliament once again descended into chaos when Anwar Ibrahim stood up to interrupt debates after a briefing by Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz on the government’s Covid-19 economic packages.
Anwar Ibrahim had drew the House’s attention to a statement issued by the Istana Negara, voicing the King’s displeasure over the recent revocation of 6 Emergency Ordinances announced on Monday (26 July).
