Zuraida says Takiyuddin merely represents Cabinet over announcement of EO revocation

Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin speaks to defend de facto Law Minister Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan saying that the minister was just representing the Cabinet’s decision on the revocation of the Emergency Ordinances.

She said that there was nothing wrong with Takiyuddin’s remarks since he only said that the Cabinet had revoked the ordinances on July 21. It was the Cabinet’s decision, so Takiyuddin is not at fault.

Meanwhile, when asked to give her thoughts on the statement from Istana Negara reprimanding Takiyuddin, she said that she was disappointed with how the monarchs dealt with it and said that it could have been done in a private set up.

She said that it is a constitutional monarchy wherein before you can do anything, you must first obtain advice from both the Cabinet and the prime minister.

Zuraida Kamaruddin has expressed that she was a bit upset saying that if there is anything that was unclear, the palace should have called for the prime minister, adding that the prime minister has been briefing the King on the matter.
