CYBERJAYA— The Cabinet Special Meeting which ended just now is said to be proposing the dissolution of the Dewan Rakyat and the ‘Political Emergency’ to the Yang Di Pertuan Agong to overcome political instability and avoid more conflicts in the next parliamentary session.
In a situation where the government has only 113 members of the Dewan Rakyat, the position of the Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is expected to always be the bet of other politicians.
The Cabinet is said to have suggested that Muhyiddin present this proposal for the consideration of the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong.
Based on the current Covid-19 pandemic, the cabinet is said to be discussing the possibility of Tuanku considering a proposal to suspend Parliament and conduct an ‘administrative emergency’ for 6 months before the general election.
The presence of the Commander of the Armed Forces, Gen Tan Sri Affendi Buang, in a special cabinet meeting today is said to be to get feedback on possible administrative emergencies.
This further strengthens the assumption that Tuanku Agong will consider the emergency as a temporary measure to stabilize the country’s politics.
If this happens Tuanku Agong will take over the administration of the country with the advice of the emergency cabinet. It can be an existing cabinet or a new cabinet.
This declaration of emergency allows the government to incur emergency expenses without the need for Parliamentary approval.
The current government is said to believe that the 2021 Budget to be tabled this November will not pass due to lack of majority support.
At the same time, this political emergency does not involve the government of the Malaysian Armed Forces like a security emergency. -SuaraTV
