KUALA LUMPUR: The Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah has voiced his concerns over the country’s political upheaval.
The King said he hoped to find the best solution.
“We are very concerned, yes I know. Be patient.
“First of all let me do my duty. I hope we will find the best solution for the country, ” His Majesty told reporters outside Istana Negara Gate 2 yesterday.
The King was slated yesterday to personally interview 90 lawmakers from a total of 222 MPs to determine who had the majority in Parliament.
These interviews would continue today.
Yesterday, His Majesty met with pressmen who had camped outside the palace. He surprised them by bringing them McDonald’s for lunch.
“Sedap (delicious). I’m hungry, ” said the King as he took a French fry and ate it, drawing laughter from members of the media.
On Monday, His Majesty had also given a dinner treat of KFC to the media fraternity that had waited outside Istana Negara.
The media has been keeping watch outside Istana Negara since news broke about the collapse of the Pakatan Harapan government on Sunday.
