KUANTAN: The Pahang State Assembly sitting which is scheduled on April 13 has been postponed after the federal government extended the movement control order (MCO).
Pahang State Assembly Speaker Datuk Seri Ishak Muhammad said a decision on the new date will be made after the MCO officially ends.
"The state assembly sitting was scheduled between April 13 and 17 next month. However, due to the MCO we have decided to postpone it.....if not next month, then maybe the sitting will be held in May.
"If the MCO is further extended then we will have to look into other options including holding a shorter sitting of the Pahang state assembly. Under the Pahang state constitution, we have until the end of May to hold our state assembly sitting," he said today.
The Regent of Pahang Tengku Mahkota, Tengku Hassanal Ibrahim Alam Shah was scheduled to open the State Assembly sitting at Wisma Sri Pahang here next month.
The recent change in Federal government did not affect the Pahang government which is under the leadership of Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail.
The Perikatan Nasional (PN) coalition has 33 state seats (BN has 25 and Pas has eight) while DAP (seven) and PKR (two) in the Pahang State Assembly.
