SEREMBAN: Tuanku Muhriz Tuanku Muna­wir expressed disappointment that no action has been taken against the wrongdoings that had been happening in the country for a long time, but was also grateful that the rakyat voted to voice their displeasure.

The Yang di-Pertuan Besar of Negri Sembilan also expressed hope that the people would never again have to witness reports of extreme abuse of power and misappropriation of funds exposed almost daily by the new federal government.

He said this was important as such wrongdoings could destroy the nation.

“What was most disappointing was that these wrongdoings had been happening for a long time and nobody was able to take any effective action.

He did not elaborate on the wrongdoings.

Also present at the event were his consort Tunku Ampuan Besar Negri Sembilan Tuanku Aishah Rohani and Mentri Besar Aminuddin Harun.

Tuanku Muhriz said he wanted his assemblymen to be “persons of honour” who executed their duties responsibly as they were constantly being watched by their voters.

The state administration, he added, should also hold more consultations with the people before finalising matters on development.

“Always remember that the people are the ones who elevated your status to Yang Berhormat.

“So you must always be a leader of high integrity and dignity, and be firm in your beliefs,” he said.

Tuanku Muhriz also said checks and balances were necessary in any administration to prevent power abuse.

“All assemblymen, enforcement agencies and civil servants must carry out their duties with integrity and accountability and without any personal agenda,” he added.

He called on the state administration to continue with programmes that benefited the people.

Tuanku Muhriz also commended the state government for having disbursed RM1.13bil through its Social Security Net Policy from 2008 to 2017 to help 1.27 million needy recipients.

He said a state’s prosperity should not only be measured by its economic growth and development in urban areas, but also include benefits received by folk living in rural and remote areas.
