Muhyiddin announces to debate Emergency Ordinances in September

The revocation of the Emergency Ordinances without the concern of the King has led to a political drama in Malaysia last week. The situation had gone from bad to worse following the detection of Covid-19 cases in the Parliament, which then led to the Parliament being closed until further notice.

Facing the pressure from the Opposition and the King, Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had announced that a motion to debate and annul the Emergency Ordinances will be tabled in the upcoming Parliament meeting in September.

In the statement, Muhyiddin emphasizes that this is in line with the Royal Decree and 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 in the Parliament meeting scheduled this September.

“It is hoped that this motion which will be discussed in the Cabinet Meeting on Wednesday (4 August) will be able to solve ongoing polemics concerning the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances.” he said in the statement posted on Facebook today (3 August).

At the same time, he said that the Emergency Ordinances not being consented to by the King does not arise anymore as the Emergency Proclamation expires on 1 August.

“It is informed that the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong could not be completed.”

“With the end of the Emergency Proclamation on 1 Aug, based on provisions under the Constitution, the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances by the King no longer arises.” he said.

Last Thursday (29 July), the Istana Negara had issued a statement from the King, where he expressed his disappointment with the Perikatan National (PN) government for revoking the 6 Emergency Ordinances without his consent.

In the statement, he also decreed that the revocation of Emergency Ordinances be tabled and debated in Parliament but it was not implemented.

Later that day, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) issued a statement to explain that Muhyiddin had advised the King to annul the Emergency Ordinances even before the special Parliament sitting convened on 26 July and in accordance to Article 40(1) of the Constitution, the King acts on the advice of the Prime Minister.

Nonetheless, the first meeting of the 4th session of the 14th Parliament is scheduled to sit for 15 days from 6 to 30 September.

This comes after a massive uproar from the Opposition Members of Parliament (MP) after the special 5-day Parliament on 26 July being temporarily postposed for 2 weeks starting 29 July.
