King calls for calm and patience

PETALING JAYA: The people should stay calm, be patient and not panic in the current situation as the battle against the Covid-19 pandemic continues, says Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah.

Comptroller of the Royal Household of Istana Negara Datuk Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin said the King also asked everyone not to speculate on his decision with regard to the proposals presented to him by Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The Prime Minister and senior officials of his administration were granted an audience with the King at Istana Abdul Aziz in Kuantan on Friday evening after a special Cabinet meeting in Putrajaya earlier that day.

“In the one-and-a-half-hour meeting, Sultan Abdullah was presented with the proposals which were decided in the special Cabinet meeting for his consideration and for his consent for implementation (of those proposals), ” said Ahmad Fadil in a statement yesterday.

He said that following the meeting, Sultan Abdullah decided to hold a meeting with the Malay Rulers at Istana Negara to discuss and look into the proposals presented by Muhyiddin.

“Therefore, Sultan Abdullah advises the people to stay calm, not to panic and be patient in the current situation while waiting for a decision.

“Everyone is also advised not to make any speculation which can cause confusion and worry which in turn will threaten the peace of our beloved country, ” he added.

He said that in view of the continued rise in Covid-19 cases and new clusters, the King had repeated his call for everyone to play their role in observing the standard operating procedure set by the authorities.
