“Those who have been present since last Monday, but are not there today, will need to undergo testing at a nearby clinic. In this regard, I will postpone the Special Meeting to next Monday (2 August),” he said.

The Dewan Rakyat had earlier adjourned at the end of the morning session, initially for discussions on the insistence on debating the issue of terminating the Emergency Ordinance following the revelation by Istana Negara that the government’s actions confused and misled the Dewan Rakyat.

However, the conference which was supposed to resume for the afternoon was again postponed when all the ministers present were ordered to undergo screening tests after the two Members of Parliament were found to be positive with Covid-19 since Monday.
