It was reported that all roads leading to parliament were blocked off by the police this morning to prevent the Special Parliament Sitting to commence as it was suspended due to Covid-19 worries

As more MPs arrived, the crowd moved on from the gazebo to the stage at the square as politicians had their say, pointing out their dissatisfaction with the current government’s move to disobey the Agong and suspend parliament.

With a banner that read “Mahiaddin & Kabinet Letak Jawatan” (Mahiaddin and Cabinet Resign) in hand, the opposition MPs marched across Dataran Merdeka, heading towards Parliament with chants demanding the resignation of the Prime Minister and for a reformation.

However, as the procession approached Jalan Parliamen, they were met by the Federal Reserve Unit (FRU) in full riot gear and a command truck 

After further negotiations the march was halted and everyone was asked to disperse at 10:48am.
