Tun Mahathir Would Look Into A Claim That The Government Had Spent RM257 Million For The Yang di-Pertuan Agong
Then at the same time, the following “expense sheet” or “accounts sheet” has gone viral via WhatsApp since yesterday. It appears to be a statement of accounting expenses for the Yang Di Pertuan Agong. The total figure tallied up is also about near that RM257 Million which Kadir Jasin has mentioned in his blog kadirjasin.blosgspot.com as well as in the story by Free Malaysia Today above.
RM257 million is indeed a lot of money to be spent on the Palace and the Agong in just 16 months.
What is even more curious in that ‘expense sheet’ above is the mention of the Agong’s “wives” ? Two European nationalities are mentioned.
Kadir Jasin : Government Allocated RM257 Million For The Yang di-Pertuan Agong Since January 2017
I am curious. This is no big deal. But Is the Agong married or not?
If the Agong is already married then we should all wish our Agong congratulations.
If he is not married then we should wish him well and hope that he may find the woman of his choice soon.
But if he is married, then where is the Raja Permaisuri Agong?
Is it true the Agong is married to those European nationals?
Can the Istana Negara shed some light if the Agong is married or not?
Our Malay Rulers (Johor, Selangor, Pahang) have been married to European and other foreign nationals before.
Our first Prime Minister the late Tunku was married to European women.

Some RM257 million was spent for the upkeep and personal expenditure of Sultan Muhammad V in the 16 months since he became the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, according to a member of the government’s top advisory council on institutional reforms.
Writing on his personal blog which he said does not represent the Council of Eminent Persons (CEP) of which he is a member, A Kadir Jasin said the amount, averaging RM16 million a month, was spent on the Agong’s accommodation, residence, personal items, aircraft, transportation, clothing, gifts and souvenirs, overseas visits and salaries of palace staff, among others. – Kadir Jasin
