SEREMBAN: Negri Sembilan ruler Tuanku Muhriz Tuanku Munawir said it was disappointing that extreme abuse of power and misappropriation of funds were happening in the country for many years and no action was taken.
“What was most disappointing was that these wrongdoings have been happening for a long time and no action was taken by any party.
“I am grateful that the people exercised their democratic rights and voiced their displeasure during the May 9 general election.
“Only after the polls had concluded that the necessary steps were taken,” he was quoted by the Star Online as saying when opening the state assembly sitting here.
However, the ruler did not elaborate on the extreme abuse of power or misappropriation of funds, the news portal said.
Tuanku Muhriz has also urged the government to check and balance in any administration to prevent power abuse.
“All assemblymen, enforcement agencies and civil servants must carry out their duties with integrity and accountability and without any personal agenda,” he said.
