The National Operations Council (NOC) or Majlis Gerakan Negara (MAGERAN) was an emergency administrative body which attempted to restore law and order in Malaysia after the 13 May incident in 1969, in the wake of the racial rioting which broke out in the federal capital of Kuala Lumpur.

The NOC was announced on 15 May 1969, with Abdul Razak Hussein as Director of Operations, although the other council members were not announced until 17 May.[1] From 1969 to 1971, the NOC governed the country in lieu of the elected government. In 1971, the NOC was dissolved with the restoration of Parliament.

Members of the Council

The Director of Operations of NOC was Abdul Razak Hussein.[2] The Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman was not formally a member, but was consulted on major decisions for approval.[3]
