JOY & PRAISE AS PALACE ANNOUNCES HRH TENGKU ABDULLAH AS PAHANG SULTAN SAYS MALAYSIA ASEAN APEC LEAD CONSUMERIST PROF DR JACOB GEORGE!
Finally, it is joyous to hear that HRH Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah, will be proclaimed as the sixth Sultan of Pahang on Jan 15, replacing Sultan Ahmad Shah, according to palace announcement!
I had alluded to this in my earlier blog posting yesterday.
It has also been widely speculated that HRH Tengku Abdullah, who had been serving as the Regent of Pahang, would succeed his father.
Many indications pointed to this like last night’s shouts of “Daulat Tuanku” (“Long Live the Sultan”) being heard towards the end of a three-hour meeting of the Pahang Royal Council.
That meeting, as I am advised by sources was to seek the council’s consent for Tengku Abdullah, who has served as regent for over two years, to be proclaimed as the Sultan.
The proclamation of Tengku Abdullah as sultan paves the way for him to be appointed the next Yang di-Pertuan Agong, following the decision by Sultan Muhammad V of Kelantan to step down as King on Jan 6.
Going by the rotation system, the Sultan of Pahang is next in line.
As I stated yesterday, HRH Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah will make a great 16th Malaysian King bringing his academic and administrative skills, vision, experience and of corporate governance when he leads the nation!
May the ALMIGHTY continue to guide, protect and bless HRH in all these tasks and responsibilities!
