Earlier at around 11am this morning (24th January), the Conference of Rulers arrived at Istana Negara to choose the 16th Agong.

Now, in an update from Bernama, Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah of Pahang was just announced as the 16th Yang di-Pertuan Agong, according to the Keeper of the Rulers’ Seal. 

Meanwhile, the Deputy Yang di-Pertuan Agong is the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Nazrin Shah.

According to the Malay Mail, cars transporting the Sultans of Selangor, Pahang, Johor, Perak, Kedah, Perlis, Terengganu and Negeri Sembilan were seen entering the palace earlier this morning.

The election of Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah as the new Agong comes just weeks after the resignation of our 15th Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V, who announced he was stepping down on 6th January.

It was previously announced that the Conference of Rulers would convene on 24th January to elect a new Agong, while a swearing-in ceremony would be held next Thursday (31st January). After this private ceremony, the newly sworn-in Agong can then decide when he would like to hold the ceremonial installation.

Stay tuned for more updates on this developing story.
