Agong says it again: Reconvene Parliament
as soon as possible...
The Cabinet today will decide whether there will be a full-blown constitutional crisis as the Yang di Pertuan Agong has made it crystal clear as to what he meant by “as soon as possible”.
After meeting Dewan Rakyat speaker Azhar Azizan Harun, his deputies Azalina Othman Said and Mohd Rashid Hasnon, Dewan Negara president Rais Yatim and his deputy Mohamad Ali Mohamad at Istana Negara this morning, the Yang di Pertuan Agong reiterated that Parliament should be convened “as soon as possible” as he wishes to see the emergency proclamation and emergency ordinances debated in Parliament, in accordance to Article 150(3) of the Federal Constitution.
If Parliament is convened after emergency is ended on August 1, then it becomes academic and purposeless to debate the emergency proclamation and the emergency ordinances for emergency would have ended.
After the Yang di Pertuan Agong’s meeting with the presiding officers of Dewan Rakyat and Dewan Negara today, there is no question as to the meaning of “as soon as possible” intended by the Yang di Pertuan Agong and the Rulers at the Conference of Rulers special meeting on June 16.
Any Cabinet Minister who still doubt as to what the Yang di Pertuan Agong meant, and thought it could extend to the convening of Parliament in September, October or indefinitely is a fool or an imbecile, and is not fit to continue to be in the Cabinet and Malaysians as a whole have the right to demand his or her resignation as a Minister as he or she does not have the necessary IQ to be in the Cabinet. - LKS
The Agong had a meeting with the Speakers and Deputy Speakers of both the House of Representatives and the Senate ; and had decreed that Parliament ought to re-convene " as soon as possible. " This second call means that it is URGENT that it is re-convened. Another strong point is that all the Select Committees should meet to discuss issues , There must be check and balance. They cannot be "frozen " , though they have been formed! The writing is on the wall! We Malaysians may wonder what the second call means if it is not a call that Parliament should be re-convened IMMEDIATELY, though the same phrase is used as a diplomatic gesture! I think the hint is very strong indeed! The Government is walking gingerly on eggs. - ScarletPanda9731
The Royal message is clear. It is always delivered in style.Art Harun and Rais Yatim must have clearly understood what was conveyed.The deputies were summoned so that there could be no misunderstanding.The effect: No hybrid meeting anymore. Committee dismissed.Announcement of date for full Parliament meeting. Could be as early as July. - Anon25
The Parliament belongs to the people and it is not the private property of Art harun nor Rais Yatim. The people want it to be convened as many are dying, losing jobs, suffering and need to get their vaccine without any bureaucratic red tape. The representative of the people need to speak up for them in the Parliament. It is as simple as that. - JazliSalleh

If the govt fails to pass the resolution on darurat,that itself is a no confidence motion on PM Muhyiddin and his govt. La ni Din dok ketaq ataih bawah... - dr.ts
Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah, mengulangi titah yang persidangan Parlimen perlu diadakan secepat mungkin dengan mematuhi garis panduan dan SOP Covid-19 yang ditetapkan. Ini adalah bagi membolehkan proklamasi darurat dan ordinan darurat yang telah dikeluarkan dapat dibentang di Parlimen seperti yang termaktub dalam Perkara 150 (3) Perlembagaan, kata kenyataan Istana Negara. Kita tunggu dan tengok sama ada dia serta konco2 dia akan terus berdolak-dalik mengenai semantik "segera" dan "secepat mungkin" atau akan memaklumkan tarikh persidangan untuk dipersetujui oleh Yang di-Pertuan Agong. - AKJ
Yang di-Pertuan agong tetap dengan keputusan dan pandangan awalnya sebelum bahawa parlimen perlu bersidang dalam masa terdekat. Sekiranya dengan persidangan itu boleh menyebabkan Mahiaddin Md Yassin hilang kedudukan sebagai Perdana Menteri, ini bermakna baginda tidak peduli lagi dengan apa yang hendak berlaku itu. Kalau takdir Mahiaddin hilang kedudukan itu, maka itulah natijah yang kena diterima. Keperluan segera parlimen diminta bersidang itu mungkin Agong pada hemahnya masalah dihadapi negara ini dapat dituntaskan dengan persidangan parlimen. Ertinya sudah dua kali Agong meminta perkara sama. - MSO
