KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 3: Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has said that a motion to debate the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances will be tabled at the upcoming Parliament sitting in September.

Muhyiddin in a statement today said the annulment process by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong upon the advice of the Federal Cabinet on July 23 “could not be completed” and a motion will be tabled at the Dewan Rakyat.

“With the end of the Emergency Proclamation on August 1, 2021 based on the Federal Constitution, the annulment of the Emergency Ordinances by His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Agong does not arise anymore.

“Hence, in line with the decreed view of His Majesty under Article 150(3) of the Federal Constitution, a motion to debate and annul the said Emergency Ordinances can be brought in the Parliament session scheduled to take place in September 2021,” he said.

Muhyiddin, who is also Pagoh MP said the motion will be discussed in the Federal Cabinet meeting tomorrow and is expected to resolve the polemic in connection with the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances which the Federal Cabinet revoked last month. — DayakDaily
