Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin today chaired another special meeting with his Cabinet following the decree by Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah yesterday that there was no necessity to declare a state of emergency.

The last time a special meeting was held was last Friday.

Muhyiddin, who arrived at the Perdana Putra complex at 9.20am, was believed to have met with PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang and MIC president SA Vigneswaran before the special meeting.

The vehicles carrying Hadi and Vigneswaran were seen entering the Perdana Putra area 10 minutes after Muhyiddin’s arrival. They left just as the special Cabinet meeting began at 11.30am.

The Cabinet members who attended the special meeting included Home Minister Hamzah Zainuddin, Communications and Multimedia Minister Saifuddin Abdullah, National Unity Minister Halimah Mohamed Sadique, Foreign Minister Hishammuddin Hussein and Education Minister Radzi Jidin.

Also spotted was Attorney-General Idrus Harun.

Yesterday, Sultan Abdullah in a statement issued by Istana Negara decreed that there was no necessity for a state of emergency and that the people, regardless of their background and political ideology, should put aside their differences and unite to play their roles in helping the government curb the spread of Covid-19.

Muhyiddin, in a statement late last night, said the Cabinet took note of the King’s decree and would hold further discussions on the matter.

The prime minister also thanked the king for the trust placed in his government and welcomed the advice to maintain stability in the administration.

He said the government would continue to prioritise protecting the people from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Malay Rulers convened a special meeting which lasted almost three hours yesterday to study the proposals made by Muhyiddin and several Cabinet members during their audience with the king at Istana Abdul Aziz in Kuantan, Pahang, last Friday.
