Just yesterday (6th January), Sultan Muhammad V of Kelantan resigned as the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong after ruling for two years since 13th December 2016.

According to the New Straits Times, His Royal Highness Sultan Muhammad V will return to Kelantan to be with the state government following his resignation.

Meanwhile, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun has warned Malaysians not to speculate the reason behind the Agong’s resignation and not to issue any provocative statements about it, as they could face legal consequences.
