Parliament will reconvene soon, assured de facto Law Minister Takiyuddin Hassan.

However, he said, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong in his decree yesterday did not specify an exact date on when the House should be in session.

"His Majesty did not say which month (Parliament) should be held, just that it should be soon.

"The Prime Minister (Muhyiddin Yassin) has said that Parliament will re-open in September or October.

"Now we are near the end of June. There's July and August, and September are soon and we will have Parliament then," he said during the Bicara Harakah programme last night.
