KUALA LUMPUR (July 29): Members of the media have been flocking to Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s residence in Bukit Damansara here since 1pm following the statement issued by Istana Negara regarding the revocation of Emergency Ordinances today.

Several vehicles believed to be carrying Cabinet ministers and Attorney-General Tan Sri Idrus Harun were spotted entering the main gate to the residence at 1.30pm.

The statement from Istana Negara stated that Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah has expressed utmost disappointment with the statement made in Parliament last Monday that the government had revoked all Emergency Ordinances under the ongoing emergency without His Majesty’s consent.

It said the King was also very disappointed that His Majesty’s decree to Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan and Attorney-General Tan Sri Idrus Harun for the proposed revocation of all the ordinances to be tabled and debated in Parliament had not been carried out.

After two hours, the situation at the Prime Minister’s residence remained calm with several vehicles which had entered the residence’ area earlier were seen leaving at 3.40pm.

Nevertheless, the members of the press still did not budge from waiting for any development on the statement issued by Istana Negara. 

The road heading to the Prime Minister’s residence, however, is now quite congested as more pressmen continue to flock to the area and park their cars on the roadsides.
