PETALING JAYA: The Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah’s summoning of political party leaders and the convening of a special rulers’ meeting highlight a “tale of wisdom and weakness” in the country today, says a political analyst.

For Jeniri Amir, the monarchy is displaying “wisdom” in taking an inclusive approach to addressing concerns over the handling of the Covid-19 situation.

“The fact that the King has summoned political party leaders, including members of the opposition, highlights His Majesty’s deep concern for the situation,” he said.

Jeniri said it was “rare” for the monarchy to get directly involved in matters of the state, though it was not the first time under the present administration.
