Law Minister, Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan had not done anything treasonous when revoking the emergency ordinance, said Datuk Zuraida Kamaruddin.

The Housing and Local Government Minister had provided her defence towards the decision stating that it followed the federal constitution.

She said that the Prime Minister had an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to discuss recommendations from the cabinet and proposals.

“If you listen to him (Takiyuddin) carefully, he said nothing wrong with regard to the ordinances. He said the cabinet has revoked the ordinances on July 21; that was the cabinet’s decision. So, there is nothing wrong with that.”

Zuraida expressed that she was upset over the letter that the palace released. She added that if there was anything ambiguous about the situation, the palace should had contacted the Prime Minister.

Every week Muhyiddin made sure that there was clarity in his acts by informing the palace.

On Tuesday (Aug 3) it was reported that Padang Rengas UMNO MP, Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz demanded Takiyuddin to apologise to the Agong for revoking the ordinance prematurely.

Nazri said that once Takiyuddin is discharged from the hospital, he should apologise to the King as he labelled it a mistake.

Takiyuddin is admitted for having a clogged heart vessel.
