With no single coalition able to win enough seats to form the government, Istana Negara instructed coalition and party leaders to notify the Dewan Rakyat Speaker of their numbers to form a new government and respective PM candidates by 2pm today. The Federal Constitution states the King has the discretion to appoint as prime minister the person he feels is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the members of the Dewan Rakyat and can act at his discretion.
