Perikatan Nasional (PN) ministers have kept mum over what transpired after concluding their almost three-hour-long special Cabinet meeting at the Prime Minister’s Office today, a day after the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s decision not to proclaim an emergency in Malaysia.
They had earlier arrived at a special Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to further discuss the Agong’s position that there was no need for a state of emergency in Malaysia or any of its states.
The ministers got into their cars and left around 2.15pm without stopping as their vehicles were swarmed by waiting journalists.
Senior International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali was the first to be seen leaving.
Among others seen leaving later were vehicles belonging to National Unity Minister Datuk Halimah Sadique, Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rina Harun and Federal Territories Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa.
Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, however, briefly said he was heading to Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) for a Barisan Nasional (BN) meeting.
Earlier today, BN called an emergency meeting of its elected representatives at PWTC.
According to Umno’s Padang Besar MP Datuk Zahidi Zainul Abidin, the meeting was to discuss ongoing political developments in the country, including the PN government’s abortive attempt to seek a proclamation of emergency.
