PETALING JAYA: While the rotational system is used to determine who among the nine Malay Rulers will be elected the next Yang di-Pertuan Agong, ultimately the nation’s 16th King will be chosen at a Special Meeting of the Conference of Rulers. This will take place on Jan 24.

Legal expert Associate Professor Dr Shamrahayu A. Aziz said the Rulers were not bound to follow the rotation list.
