KUALA LUMPUR, March 11 2019 : Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah said national leaders must listen and take into account the demands of the people when drawing up policies and programmes for them.
The King said this was because the people now wanted a responsible government which listened to their opinions and aspirations.
“The people today not only wants development but also a government that is clean, transparent, responsible as well as upholding the sovereignty of the law to take the nation to greater height,”said Sultan Abdullah.
His Majesty said this when officially opening the Second Term of the 14th Parliament at the Parliament Building, here today. Also gracing the occasion was Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah Almarhum Sultan Iskandar.
The Yang di-Pertuan Agong also wanted the war against corruption to continue because this scourge burdened the people and destroyed the fundamentals of the nation. – Bernama
