KUALA LUMPUR: An opposition MP has questioned what will happen to the 65 private clinics operating as Covid-19 assessment centres (CACs) in Selangor, now that the emergency ordinances have been revoked.

In a press conference at Parliament today, Teo Nie Ching (PH – Kulai) said the government must immediately clarify the matter.

“One of the emergency ordinances was about the government’s power to appoint clinics and private medical facilities to become CACs.

“This would be in effect from April 1 to Aug 1, 2021. But now that the emergency ordinances have been annulled, what happens to the private clinics that were appointed as CACs?”

Teo said the government should not wait until Monday to answer all questions raised in the Dewan Rakyat.

Yesterday, law minister Takiyuddin Hassan revealed that the emergency ordinances had been revoked since July 21, as the government had decided to cancel them under Article 153 of the Federal Constitution.

Takiyuddin also said the annulment of the emergency ordinances meant that they are no longer relevant. - FMT
