Local media outlets report that Malaysia's de facto Law Minister Takiyuddin successfully underwent a stent placement surgery after being admitted to a hospital in Klang Valley last Friday. This means that Takiyuddin was hospitalised a day after he was scorned by the King for the government's decision to suddenly revoke emergency ordinances without parliamentary approval and royal assent. Some analysts have expected that PM Muhyiddin might shift the blame onto Takiyuddin to try and cling onto power. His party colleague Tuan Ibrahim noted in a Facebook post that the minister will be discharged from hospital "in a day or two".
- Meanwhile, a group of opposition lawmakers gathered in front of the House of Representatives trying to enter its buildings but were turned away by the police. They refused to comply with PM Muhyiddin's decision to postpone today's parliamentary session, which came after the opposition tabled a motion for a vote of no-confidence. Opposition leader Anwar reiterated his view that PM Muhyiddin is no longer backed by majority of lawmakers.
