KUALA LUMPUR, July 29 — The government continues to enjoy the support of more than 110 members of parliament, its chief whip in the Dewan Rakyat, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said.
Ismail Sabri, who is also Deputy Prime Minister, called on the people to remain calm in the face of the current situation and urged everyone to pray for a swift end to the ongoing political crisis.
“The country’s political situation today is not stable which can undermine efforts to resolve our economic problems and measures taken to contain the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said in a statement today.
Ismail Sabri said he also upholds and respects the decree by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah in the media statement issued by Istana Negara today.
In Istana Negara’s media statement, His Majesty expressed utmost disappointment with the statement made in Parliament last Monday that the government had revoked all Emergency Ordinances under the ongoing emergency without His Majesty’s consent.
Al-Sultan Abdullah was also very disappointed that His Majesty’s decree to Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan and Attorney-General Tan Sri Idrus Harun for the proposed revocation of all the ordinances to be tabled and debated in Parliament had not been carried out.
