Pre-GE15 political crisis could’ve been avoided, says king

MALAYSIA could have avoided a four-year political turmoil if the events that led to former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s resignation did not happen, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah said.

“If the episodes that led to the resignation of the seventh prime minister did not happen, then surely the chain of political turmoil that lasted until the 15th general election could have been avoided.
