PETALING JAYA: All the emergency ordinances (EOs) have been revoked as of July 21 because the government decided to cancel them under Article 153 of the Federal Constitution, law minister Takiyuddin Hassan said. 

Takiyuddin told the Dewan Rakyat the government has decided it will not advise the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to extend the state of emergency, which ends on Aug 1.

He also said the annulment of the EOs means they are no longer relevant.

However, Gobind Singh Deo (DAP-Puchong) said that under Article 153, the decision to extend or revoke the emergency should be made by Parliament. 

“It is clear,” he told speaker Azhar Harun, who said it was not true.  Azhar said the emergency ordinances had been revoked earlier. 

At this point, Takiyuddin confirmed that the six emergency ordinances were revoked on July 21.

"Not today,” he added.
