Malaysian King Says Parliament Must Reopen Despite Emergency | World

Yawn NGAP communication

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (AP) — Malaysian king said Wednesday that parliament, which had been suspended due to a coronavirus emergency since January, should resume as soon as possible, but said the emergency should end. I couldn’t say it.

The monarch’s comments contrasted with those of Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin. Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said parliament could only be reopened if new coronavirus infections fell below 2,000 per day and 40% of the population was completely vaccinated. He predicted it could be September or October.

After consulting with various political leaders, an independent committee advising him on emergencies, and various experts, Sultan Ahmed Shah, King of Sultan Abdullah, said Congress “needs to resume as soon as possible.” He said he believed.

He said in a statement released by the palace that parliamentarians should be able to discuss government spending allocations to help suffering citizens and efforts to strengthen economic recovery.

Sultan Abdullah approved Muhyiddin’s emergency plan in early January. The plan was criticized by critics as a political ploy to help the embarrassed prime minister maintain power in his leadership challenge.

An emergency scheduled for the end of August will suspend Congress, but does not include any other measures. The Muhyiddin administration remains in control and has extraordinary power to introduce the law without parliamentary approval. Malaysian King Says Parliament Must Reopen Despite Emergency | World
