Saw this just now;
PMO says needn’t debate emergency ordinances
It stated that Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had presented the Cabinet’s advice and clarification on the matter to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong during an audience on Tuesday.
“During this session, the prime minister has once again presented the advice from the Cabinet regarding the revocation of the emergency ordinances and made clarifications on the confusion that the opposition tried to trigger in the Dewan Rakyat session.
“The prime minister had informed the government’s view that all ordinances do not need to be revoked by Parliament, seeing that the Cabinet has decided to advise His Majesty to revoke it.
“Not only that, this parliamentary session is a special sitting under Standing Order 11(3) of the Dewan Rakyat and its agenda is ministerial briefings, and there are no motions to revoke the emergency ordinances.
“So, the cabinet had decided to advise His Majesty to revoke the ordinances before the special sitting began,” read the statement.
The PMO cited Article 40 (1) of the federal constitution that the Agong must act according to the advice of the Cabinet.
Looks like the fight isn't over yet.
The last paragraph sounds like Muhyiddin is ready to go all out.
Everyone seems excited today after the Agong issued his statement that he's unhappy over the way the Emergency ordinances (EO) were revoked without his consent.
I was actually in the middle of writing my last post when my boss informed me about it.
Well, everyone now thinks Anwar and the Pakatan gang will take over Putrajaya again. Especially Anwar, of course.
Yup, Muhyiddin is a dead duck in the water, it seems.
What's puzzling me though was that why did he and his gang initially tried to delay the discussion on the EO till Monday.
Surely, the whole thing would be blown out anyway on that day.
There must be something to it. Muhyiddin must surely had a plan on that day.
Now, when the whole thing went haywire with the Agong's statement, Muhyiddin must have been scrambling to do damage control and adjust his plan.
I believe he got a lucky break when two new Covid cases were detected in parliament this afternoon and it was put under lockdown.
The Deputy Speaker later announced that the parliament has been adjourned and will only be reconvene on Monday - the day Muhyiddin has initially planned to pull the white rabbit out of his hat.
Now he has three days to prepare for that.
Still, I don't know what that is he is going to do.
Honestly, if I'm Muhyiddin, I would have just resigned.
Really. I don't want the headache.
I would resign and get Ismail Sabri to take over the PM post.
That way, Perikatan may secure the Umno MPs votes and retain power.
Let Perikatan be led by Umno.
That's better than letting Anwar and his Pakatan gang regaining power as they would surely go after the all the Perikatan people like they did to Umno leaders after GE14.
The Umno leadership will also then have no reason to submit to Pakatan rule and go back to how it was after GE14.
Surely they would be happy.
Well, if Muhyiddin do as what I would do in his position, he would then be able to retire peacefully instead of being thrown in jail over some corruption charges being thrown at him by Anwar and the gang in power.
But that's just stupid me thinking.
After all, Muhyiddin may have his own brilliant plan for Monday.
Who knows, maybe he would let the EO thingy be debated and voted upon and by magic he still wins by having enough MPs supporting him.
After all, there's three more days to it, and anything could happen.
