Tunku Mahkota Johor (TMJ, Tunku Ismail Idris, had another “Ask Me A Question” session on his Instagram during the long weekend.
This time, the famous royalty figure responded to netizens’ enquiry on when the Johor Sultan will ascend the throne as the ruler of the country.
“Tunku, when will it be the Johor Sultan’s turn to become the YDPA? The politics are becoming worst. The rakyat has been affected,” one of his followers wrote. The crown prince replied by pointing out that the Royal Highness is estimated to have “2 to 3 years” for him to take over the position.
Subsequently, TMJ was also asked whether Johor could possibly be ruled by a Sultan. According to him, “It all depends on the people.” The former Football Association Malaysia (FAM) president also shared his thought if Johor should be independent from Malaysia. “My opinion? If that is what the people want, then it’s their right,” he responded.
During the session, some were also wondering why Johor has its own army. In this case, TMJ explained that the state “was not part of Malaya. It has been a sovereign state since 1885. We had a Federation Agreement during the time when we joined the formation of Malaysia, similar to Sabah and Sarawak.”
Previously, TMJ dished on why he dislikes this one particular politician known as “YB Muar”. Check out what he said here.
