Umno veteran Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah has urged the government to reconvene Parliament before the emergency ends on Aug 1.
“Don’t wait till October. This is not about the power to control Covid-19. It (emergency) has nothing to do with rakyat,” the Gua Musang MP said during a launch of a petition to reconvene Parliament as soon as possible.
He urged the rakyat to sign a petition to reconvene Parliament immediately.
On June 16, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah, said he wanted Parliament to reconvene as soon as possible.
In a statement, Comptroller of the Royal Household Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin said the King was aware of Parliament’s important role in discussing issues involving Covid-19. – FMT
