The Clarification By DYMM The Sultan Of Johor.

The following report is taken from Malaysiakini. 


Johor Sultan clarifies refusal to be next Agong, says adhering to tradition

Published 14 Oct 2016
Johor's Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar rejected the offer to become the next Yang Di-Pertuan Agong out of respect for the rotation tradition.

This was according to the monarch's official Facebook page, which refuted earlier claims that the Johor Sultan preferred to focus on his state and Bangsa Johor.

"Contrary to social media reports, DYMM Sultan Johor declined the offer to become the next Yang di-Pertuan Agong because he wants to strictly adhere to the rotation system set by the conference of rulers.

"Under this time-tested succession pattern, the Sultan of Kelantan is next in line, followed by the Sultan of Pahang."

(My comments :  
Divulging this information about the succession of the YDP Agong is quite unprecedented.  I believe this is the first time so much information about the 'succession' has been made public, especially by a Sultan and member of the Rulers' Conference. 

So I hope it is ok to ask for some further clarification. Why was DYMM The Sultan of Johor offered the post  of YDP Agong, ahead of DYMM The Sultan of Kelantan and DYMM The Sultan of Pahang? Also who 'made' or 'makes' these offers?)
"Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar respects and understands the rule of succession by rotation and wishes to abide by this," read the statement on Sultan Ibrahim's official Facebook page.

Johor Southern Tigers Facebook, which earlier today claimed the Johor Sultan rejected the offer to focus on Johor and Bangsa Johor, has since deleted its post.

The Johor Southern Tigers Facebook page is a platform where Johor crown prince Tunku Ismail Ibrahim usually issues his statements.

The deleted message had read: "This was all done as the Sultan of Johor insists on giving his utmost focus on the sovereignty of Johor and the welfare of the people of Johor".

In a comment response on the now deleted post, the account also clarified that the process is usually by a rotation system, but all the other rulers had wanted the Johor Sultan to be the next Agong.

(My comments :  Was there any particular reason why " all the other rulers had wanted the Johor Sultan to be the next Agong.

“But the Johor Sultan has declined the offer to concentrate fully on Johor,” read the comment.

In accordance with the rotation system, Kelantan's Sultan Muhammad V will be succeeding the current Agong, Tuanku Abdul Halim, whose five-year term since Dec 13, 2011 will end this Dec 12.

The voting by the nine rulers is by secret ballot and a candidate needed to receive at least five votes to be named the next Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

(My comments : Is the process of voting and secret ballot  supplementary to the 'rotation' system to appoint the next YDP Agong ?   There already is a rule of succession by rotation. )

This voting procedure is repeated for the post of Deputy Yang di-Pertuan Agong, who will act on the Agong’s behalf during His Majesty’s absence in the country, or due to illness.

'Unanimous decision'

On the old Facebook posting, it was further clarified that the rotation system is the norm, however, "when an issue arises, it will be conducted according to a vote".

It added all the sultans agreed with the decision in favour of the Kelantan Sultan.
"And for this reason too the Johor Sultan chaired this 242nd Conference of Rulers meeting."

Meanwhile, according to Bernama, the keeper of the rulers' seal Syed Danial Syed Ahmad officially announced the Kelantan Sultan as the 15th Agong, with Perak Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah as the deputy.

Closing  :  Our heartiest congratulations to DYMM Sultan Muhammad V of Kelantan who has been appointed the YDP Agong. May His Royal Highness rule over all Malaysians in good health and happiness and with wisdom and compassion. Daulat Tuanku.
