KUANTAN, March 26 -- The Pahang state legislative assembly sitting scheduled to begin on April 13 will be postponed to a later date.
Pahang State Legislative Assembly Speaker Datuk Seri Ishak Muhammad said the decision was in line with the decision by the Federal government to extend the Movement Control Order (MCO) until April 14.
“If the order is further extended, it is likely that the next assembly will be held the following month as we have until the end of May to hold our state assembly sitting.
“...But if the situation still does not permit, we will have to look at other alternatives such as a shorter sitting to meet the requirements of the Pahang state constitution,” he told Bernama when contacted here today.
Ishak said according to the schedule, the Regent of Pahang Tengku Mahkota, Tengku Hassanal Ibrahim Alam Shah is scheduled to officiate the five-day assembly sitting.
The two-week-long MCO came into force on March 18 to curb the spread of COVID-19.
However, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin yesterday announced the government’s decision to extend it until April 14.
