THE THIRD FORCE
A Microsoft Exel spreadsheet screen-capture purporting to detail the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s expenditure has been making its rounds via WhatsApp and We Chat, as confirmed by A. Kadir Jasin, the official spokesman for Pakatan Harapan. According to the spreadsheet, in a span of just 16 months, a total of RM256, 907, 470 was spent by Sultan Muhammad V of Kelantan for various purposes that include his private travels out of the country.
The spreadsheet is as pictured below:
However, it was brought to our attention that the spreadsheet is fake and was deliberately created to turn the rakyat against the Monarchical Institution. In light of this development, we at The Third Force have taken the liberty to furnish you with the exact account of the Agong’s expenditure both in 2017 and 2018.
We hope that with the publication of this table, the whole “Agong spent a quarter billion” affair will be put to rest and that the rakyat is made aware of attempts by unscrupulous quarters to trigger unrest and to undermine the sanctity of the Monarchical Institution.
