If anyone wants to play politics, wait for the next election, King tells MPs

KUALA LUMPUR: All parties must respect the unity government that has been formed, says His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim, King of Malaysia.

Delivering his Royal Address at the official opening of the First Meeting of the Third Session of the 15th Parliament here on Monday (Feb 26), Sultan Ibrahim in a strongly-worded message said that all Members of Parliament need to focus their efforts on helping the people.

His Majesty said that he will not entertain any requests that could jeopardise political stability.

Sultan Ibrahim said all quarters must accept reality and respect the formation of the unity government.

"If anyone wants to play politics, wait for the next election," said His Majesty, drawing thumps of approval from the floor.

Sultan Ibrahim also said that the government had to come up with a policy to strengthen unity and harmony as relationships between races were still not as desired since Malaysia's formation over 60 years ago.

"There are still some today who fail to grasp the national language and understand the cultures of other races. I call on the government to come up with a policy to enhance national unity and harmony," said Sultan Ibrahim.
