Following his imprisonment, the question was whether or not former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak was going to seek a royal pardon and whether or not the Yang di-Pertuan Agong will choose to agree to the royal pardon which will free Najib.

Just today, in a statement released by Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Azhar Azizan Harun, he confirmed that Najib has filed a petition seeking a royal pardon for his conviction in the SRC International case.

In his statement, Azhar said that Najib filed the petition on September 2 which is within 14 days of the Federal Court’s affirmation of his conviction in the case.

This also means that Najib remains as the Pekan MP.

“The enforcement of his disqualification as an MP will only begin if his petition is denied. As such, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s status as the Pekan MP remains unchanged at this time.”

Azhar’s had previously told reporters that Najib would lose his MP status and that he would automatically be disqualified as the Pekan MP after 14 days if no other court procedures were initiated or a royal pardon was not applied for within that period.
