ALOR SETAR, June 20 — The Kedah legislative assembly will sit only after Parliament reconvenes, Menteri Besar Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor said.
He said there was no specific date set for the assembly to convene in the near future either virtually or hybrid as it was still bound by the Emergency Ordinance.
“Whether (Kedah legislative assembly) will sit face to face or virtually, we will wait for Parliament to reconvene first,” he said in a brief statement via WhatsApp today.
Last Friday, Kedah Pakatan Harapan urged Muhammad Sanusi to seek an urgent audience with Sultan of Kedah, Al-Aminul Karim Sultan Sallehuddin Sultan Badlishah to convene the state legislative assembly sitting as soon as possible.
This was after Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah on Wednesday expressed the view that Parliament should reconvene as soon as possible to allow the National Recovery Plan to be debated by members of the Dewan Rakyat.
Keeper of the Rulers’ Seal, Tan Sri Syed Danial Syed Ahmad had also said that at the state level, the Malay Rulers were also of the view that the state legislative assemblies in their respective states should be allowed to reconvene as soon as possible.
