Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee schedules a “physical” meeting on July 26

July 2, 2021 (PN)

The Public Accounts Committee (PAC) will meet physically on July 26 in Parliament at 2pm.  

This comes after the June 28 decree by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (YDPA) calling for Parliamentary Select Committees (PSCs) to check and balance the government. 

Parliament has yet to reconvene due to the declared state of Emergency that is set to expire on August 1.

Following the YDPA’s decrees both on June 16 and June 28, and after much deliberation by the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan who earlier responded by saying the King did not provide a specific date for the Parliament to reconvene, Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin subsequently announced through a press statement issued by Takiyuddin on July 2 that the suspended Parliament will convene on July 26.

In a June 29 statement, Comptroller of the Royal Household Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin said the King wanted to see the emergency proclamation and emergency ordinances debated in accordance with Article 150(3) of the Federal Constitution.

The Article stipulated that both the proclamation and ordinances can be revoked at Parliament’s call.
