Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad revealed today he has failed to convince the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong to act on the Citizens Declaration.

The former prime minister said that during his meeting with the Ruler last month, he was unable to convince the Agong to take any sort of action regarding the 1.2 million signatures he submitted.

“I cannot actually repeat what he said because in confidence. The implication is that what we requested for cannot be implemented,” Dr Mahathir told reporters in a press conference today.

Dr Mahathir said that he mainly spoke about the National Security Act (NSA) and explained to him that if a Ruler is unsure about a law he can refer the matter to the Federal Court.

“We had a long discussion and he questioned me about provisions of the law and I explained. End of it I could not convince him he could act,” Dr Mahathir added
