Prorogue parliament MIC’s idea, says BN sec-gen
BARISAN Nasional has never considered asking for parliament to be suspended so that the government could concentrate on Covid-19 containment efforts, said Annuar Musa.

The BN secretary-general said the idea was the MIC president’s and not the coalition’s.

He said BN neither discussed the prorogation of parliament nor proposed the idea to the king.

On whether BN would make its support for Perikatan Nasional, conditional, Annuar said the coalition had not reached a decision on the matter. 

“At BN level we have not held any meetings, so there is no new information and we cannot predict when the meeting will be held because we have not received instructions,” he said. – Bernama, October 15, 2020.
