Wait for next general election, warns Sultan Ibrahim

YANG di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Ibrahim on Monday advised lawmakers to cease plans to oust the national unity government outside of elections, using his royal address to tell them to instead focus their energy on the betterment of their constituents.

The Agong said during his speech to open the first parliamentary meeting of the year that the national unity government was formed democratically following the previous general election.

Sultan Ibrahim then said he would not brook any attempts to trigger a premature change of government that could destabilise the country.

“Everyone must accept the formation of the national unity government. Those keen on playing politics should wait for the next election,” he said.
