Emergency Confusion And The Political Ramifications

The Yang di-Pertuan Agong has said he is deeply disappointed with how the government acted. What are the political ramifications of this? The Morning Run speaks to Dr. Hamidin Abd Hamid, Research Fellow with the Ilham Centre, about this, as well as the biggest winners and losers, the growing UMNO tussle between Dato Seri Ismail Sabri and Dato Seri Zahid Hamidi, and where Dato Seri Anwar stands.

Recap: Yang di-Pertuan Agong is disappointed that the Cabinet had decided to revoke the Emergency Ordinances promulgated during the state of emergency without receiving his consent, but the Prime Minister's Office says that "all actions taken were orderly and in line with the requirements of the law and the Federal Constitution".
