King urges politicians to accept GE13 results

KUALA LUMPUR: Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah, in his royal address at parliament today, urged politicians from both sides of the house to accept the results of the 13th General Election.

He said the general election had been conducted according to the principles of the democratic system.

The King also expressed his gratitude that the general election was concluded in a peaceful manner and extended a note of appreciation to all Malaysians who had gone out to vote on that day.

Congratulating all Members of Parliament, the King also expressed hope that the MPs would serve the people with dedication and integrity and fulfil all the promises they made to the people.

"Congratulations to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his cabinet for forming the Federal Government. I am confident that they will do their best to develop the country and achieve the high-income nation status by 2020.

"The new government is committed to realising the national transformation agenda through the National Key Result Areas (NKRAs) and Economic Transformation Programme (ETP). All these will benefit the people economically, socially and politically," he told the house.

The King also reflected on his two tenures as YDPA, saying the country had progressed into a modernised and industrialised nation since his last term.

He urged the people to get rid of attitude which could split Malaysians, adding that they should find ways to reach mutual understanding to instil and strengthen unity.

"The status of Islam as the official religion should not be questioned or manipulated to serve the interests of certain people as it could subvert the faith of Muslims," he added.

Earlier, the King arrived at Parliament about 10am and proceeded to the banquet hall for the customary guard-of-honour.

The guard-of-honour was held indoors for the first time in history due to the worsening haze.

He was accompanied by the Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Hajah Haminah.

Also present were Najib and his deputy Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
