KUALA LUMPUR: Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah will discuss with Malay Rulers at Istana Negara soon on proposals submitted by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to His Majesty yesterday.
Comptroller of the Royal Household Datuk Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin said His Majesty understands the need for the continuation of the country’s administration to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.
“In fact, His Majesty is also very concerned about the people’s anxiety and worries over this latest development,“ Ahmad Fadil said in a statement from Istana Negara.
“Al-Sultan Abdullah advises the people to remain calm, not panic and be patient in facing this latest situation while waiting for a decision on the proposals,“ Ahmad Fadil said.
