LEADERS of the various Semenanjung political parties have already met the Yang di-Pertuan Agong while leaders of Borneo parties are slated to do so in the first half of this week. The Agong is then expected to chair a meeting of the Conference of Rulers, presumably to discuss the pandemic and share the input of the various leaders he has met. 

Some of those leaders have disclosed the agendas of their royal meetings. Lim Guan Eng, for example, conveyed the rakyat’s hardships to the king while Dr Mahathir Mohamad shared with the monarch his vision of a National Operations Council 2.0 to temporarily take over the reins of leadership.
