KUCHING, Oct 25: Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah has asserted that there is no need for the country to declare a state of emergency.

Following a meeting between the King with seven other Malay Rulers at Istana Negara in Kuala Lumpur today, the Comptroller of the Royal Household Datuk Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin in a statement revealed the King trusts in the leadership of Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to continue to implement policies and enforcement measures to curb the Covid-19 pandemic in the country.

“After discussion with the Malay Rulers and looking at the current situation faced by the country, the present government has managed to curb the (Covid-19) pandemic well and effectively.

“There is no need for His Majesty to declare an emergency in this country or any part of Malaysia,” the statement read.


The King reminded all politicians to stop politicking which could cause political instability in the country.

The King also asserted that there is no need for certain MPs to act irresponsibly which could destabilise the present government.

He stressed that Budget 2021 which will be tabled at the Parliament sitting is very important to the people and the recovery of the country’s economy.

Thus, the allocation from the budget is important for frontliners in discharging their duties and responsibilities.

The King urged the people to set aside different political ideologies and to be united in assisting the government to curb the Covid-19 pandemic in the country. — DayakDaily
