Comptroller of the Royal Household Ahmad Fadli Shamsuddin confirmed today that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong has consented to the Dewan Rakyat speaker’s decision to not call for a special sitting on the 2nd of March 2020.

According to reports, Dewan Rakyat speaker Mohamad Ariff Md Yusof had announced that he could not allow the sitting sought by Interim Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad because it did not comply with Standing Order 11 (3).

On Thursday, Mahathir wrote to Mohamad seeking a meeting to allow Members of Parliament to vote on their choice candidate for the post of Prime Minister.

This followed Mahathir’s announcement that the matter was decided by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong during his meeting with the ruler at the Istana Negara on the same day.


PETALING JAYA: Comptroller of the Royal Household Ahmad Fadli Shamsuddin confirmed today that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong has consented to the Dewan Rakyat speaker’s decision to not call for a special sitting on the 2nd of March 2020.

According to reports, Dewan Rakyat speaker Mohamad Ariff Md Yusof had announced that he could not allow the sitting sought by Interim Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad because it did not comply with Standing Order 11 (3).




Mohamad, a former Court of Appeal judge, was summoned twice to the Istana Negara today.

He reportedly said the special sitting should only take place after the Agong has appointed a Prime Minister.

On Thursday, Mahathir wrote to Mohamad seeking a meeting to allow Members of Parliament to vote on their choice candidate for the post of Prime Minister.

This followed Mahathir’s announcement that the matter was decided by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong during his meeting with the ruler at the Istana Negara on the same day.

Mahathir ecplained that the Agong met Members of Parliament because he wanted them to make their stand individually.

“The King, as you know, has asked all the members of Parliament to make a statement because they had made a statutory declaration… But the King is not sure and that he wants them (the MPs) to make their statement in front of him,” he said.

Earlier today, the Istana Negara confirmed that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong has not identified any MP with majority support for the role of Prime Minister.
