The Yang di-Pertuan Agong today said that the consensus among party leaders in the coalition government allows the generation of economic growth that will guarantee the people's well-being and create political stability.
Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah said this was in line with his desire to see the formation of a stable and strong government.
Congratulating Anwar Ibrahim on his appointment as Malaysia's 10th prime minister, as well as the appointments of his Cabinet members, Sultan Abdullah urged all parties to accept and respect the results of the 15th general election.
"I appreciate the introduction of the Madani country initiatives that encompass aspects of sustainability, well-being, creativity, respect, confidence, courtesy and mercy.
"I hope these principles will be translated well in the framework of creating a leap for the country," Sultan Abdullah said in his royal address when opening the second session of the 15th Parliament in Kuala Lumpur today.
Sultan Abdullah also welcomed efforts by the government to curb the leakage of public funds, including the initiative to speed up the mechanism of providing targeted subsidies in an effort to face global economic challenges, post Covid-19 economic uncertainty, as well as inflationary pressures that increase the cost of living.
He also thanked the government for its commitment and determination to eliminate corruption by focusing on aspects of procurement, enforcement and large-scale corruption to cultivate integrity and strengthen the country’s governance.
Sultan Abdullah also welcomed the initiative to strengthen the ummah development agenda based on the principles of Maqasid Syariah in the country’s administration, in empowering the management of Islamic affairs such as Islamic education, shariah law, family institutions, Malaysian halal certification and tahfiz education.
"This effort is important to create a society that has superior spiritual, intellectual and personal strength," the Agong said.
