Agong again says Parliament should reopen as soon as possible

The Yang di-Pertuan Agong declared in the Parliament that they should be meeting again as soon as possible to allow for the Emergency declaration and Emergency laws to be presented in Parliament.

This comes after the King granted an audience at Istana Negara to Dewan Negara Speaker Tan Sri Rais Yatim and Dewan Rakyat Speaker Datuk Azhar Azizan Harun in a one-hour meeting, with those also in attendance being Deputy Dewan Negara Speaker Datuk Seri Mohamad Ali Mohamad, and Deputy Dewan Rakyat Speakers Datuk Mohd Rashid Hasnon and Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said.

In a statement issued by Istana Negara’s Comptroller of the Royal Household Datuk Indera Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin, it was stated that the Agong desired for Parliament to reconvene as quickly as possible.

“Following this audience session and further to the special discussion session of the Conference of Rulers that had taken place on June 16, 2021, His Majesty expresses the view that the Parliament meeting should be held as quickly as possible in compliance with the guidelines and Covid-19 standard operating procedures determined by the government and the Health Ministry.
