PETALING JAYA: Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar warns that he will not hesitate to dissolve the Johor state assembly if assemblymen continue to engage in power struggles and threaten the state government.

“I will not entertain any political games by assemblymen and risk destabilising my state and government. If that occurs, then I will not hesitate to dissolve the state assembly.

“We don’t need politicians to represent the people if all they think about is themselves and not the interests and welfare of the rakyat,” His Majesty.

Sultan Ibrahim was speaking at the opening of the 14th Johor state assembly at the Sultan Ismail Building in Kota Iskandar, Iskandar Puteri on Thursday (Aug 12).

His Majesty also reminded assemblymen to fully utilise the current session to discuss and plan a clear course of action to help the rakyat and rebuild Johor’s economy.

“There is no need to bring up unnecessary motions in the House. Don’t be selfish. The rakyat are suffering, going hungry, losing their jobs and some are even fighting for their lives because of Covid-19.

“This is not the time to fight (for political power); rather this is the time to unite and work together. Don’t look around to see what other politicians are up to, look at yourselves in the mirror instead,” His Majesty stressed.

Sultan Ibrahim's warning was also posted on His Majesty's official Facebook page Thursday morning.
