Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin has expressed his thanks to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong for his confidence in the government’s ability to address the Covid-19 crisis.

In a short statement, Muhyiddin said his Cabinet will meet to deliberate on the Agong’s decision not to declare a state of emergency as proposed.

“The government and the Cabinet’s priority is to protect the people from Covid-19,” the prime minister said.

Earlier, Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah said he felt there was no need to declare a state of emergency to help authorities in efforts to fight Covid-19, saying Muhyiddin’s administration had so far done a good job of battling the deadly pandemic.

“That being the case, His Majesty would like to remind politicians to immediately cease all politicking that will disrupt the stability of the nation’s administration,” said a statement released by Istana Negara, shortly after a meeting of Malay rulers to discuss a proposal to declare an emergency in order to prevent snap polls.
