Malaysia: No Extension Of State Of Emergency, Says Takiyuddin

Malaysia will not extend the month-long national state of emergency when it ends on August 1, said Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan.

Takiyuddin is the minister in the Prime Minister's Department (Parliament and Law). 

Malaysia has been under a state of emergency since 12 January 2021.

Takiyuddin said the government will not ask Yang di-Pertuan Agong to extend the emergency during the parliament meeting today, July 26.

The withdrawal will not affect the position of Muhyiddin Yassin or his cabinet, he added. 

"A total of six Emergency Ordinances were gazetted and have been revoked on July 22," according to Takiyuddin.

However, there was no updated version of the claim.
