Malaysia’s King urges politicians to resolve issues through negotiations, constitutional means


  • Malaysia’s King Al-Sultan Abdullah called on politicians not to drag the country through more political uncertainty and urged them to resolve issues through negotiations and constitutional means.
  • The king’s comments came amid a power struggle over the premiership between Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin and opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, just seven months after another wrangle led to Muhyiddin forming the government.
  • The latest bout of uncertainty comes as Malaysia grapples with an economy battered by the coronavirus and a new surge in infections.
