The Dewan Rakyat sitting will be held for half-day beginning today until Thursday after it was adjourned at 1 pm yesterday as a precautionary measure following the spread of Covid-19 outbreak in the country.


The matter was proposed by Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan under Standing Order 12(1) before the question-and-answer session today and was seconded by Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin.

Following the decision that the Dewan Rakyat would sit for only half-day until Thursday, the Special Chamber session had also been reset to start from 11 am until 1 pm from today to Thursday.

Normally, the Special Chamber session starts at 2.30 pm.

Budget 2021 is scheduled for Friday and is traditionally held after the afternoon Friday prayers. However, Parliament has yet to make an announcement on that.

On Monday, Senator Ras Adiba Radzi said her sister, Ras Afiona Radzi, who is also her special aide, had tested positive.

Ras Adiba is now awaiting her Covid-19 screening results.
