KUALA LUMPUR: The monarchy is not necessarily sidelined under the new National Security Council Bill (NSC Bill), said Gua Musang MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.
“It’s a question of expediency. After all, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong must still accept the advice of the Cabinet. In this instance, the Cabinet was thinking of expediency more than anything else. After all, the Prime Minister briefs the Agong once a week, which is according to practice,” said Tengku Razaleigh.
