There will be no parliamentary debate after the 10am speech by Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah on 18 May.
This is according to a press statement signed by Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Mohamad Ariff Md Yusof.
In the statement, Mohamad Ariff says Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the measure was taken due to the threat of Covid-19 in the country.
18 May would have been the first time members of parliament had convened since Perikatan Nasional took over the Federal Government.
Some of the motions that had already been approved for debate included a vote of no-confidence against Muhyiddin by his predecessor Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
TRP's Head of Editorial, Hamzah was formerly a hard-news journalist who reported on politics, did investigative work, and occasionally went undercover. He now spends his days sitting at a desk, checking grammar and fielding calls from PR companies, which is totally fine and fulfilling. For sure. He's also married with kids now so his wife and mother said he can't do risky things anymore.
