KUALA KANGSAR: Raja Muda of Perak Raja Nazrin Shah has been proclaimed the new Sultan of Perak. He will now be known as Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah.

The proclamation was made at the Balairong Seri (Throne Room) of the Istana Iskandariah at 3.15pm yesterday.

It began with Orang Kaya Bendahara Seri Maharaja Jen (rtd) Tan Sri Mohd Zahidi Zainuddin reading out the proclamation and announcing the new Sultan.

“Based on the Article 6 of the State Constitution Schedule 2, with the full consent and endorsement by the state Dewan Negara which convened on May 28, Raja Nazrin Shah has been appointed the new Sultan of Perak,” he said.

Following that, Sultan Nazrin stepped to the throne where he pledged to rule the state fairly.

“I swear, Wallahi, Wabillahi, Watallahi, that I will rule Perak fairly based on the state constitution and Allah’s law,” he said, before signing the declaration of oath.

Zahidi then hailed “Daulat Tuanku” three times and everyone present followed suit.

Mufti of Perak Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria followed up with a recital of the “Doa Selamat”.

Sultan Nazrin then placed his hands on the casket of the late Sultan Azlan Shah and kissed it to signal that the funeral ceremony could proceed.

There are several other ceremonies that are part of the installation of the Sultan of Perak, including visits to royal mausoleums across the state.

The eldest son of the late Sultan Azlan and his consort Tuanku Bainun, 57-year-old Sultan Nazrin is a caring Ruler who takes a personal interest in the welfare and concerns of the state’s subjects.

As Raja Muda and the Regent of Perak, the 35th Perak Ruler was actively involved in various charitable causes.
