Nazri: Courts should have thrown out application to challenge King's decision

Legal challenges to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong's decision not to declare a state of emergency should have been thrown out immediately, says Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz.

The Padang Rengas MP said this was because Article 150 in the Federal Constitution clearly states that this was the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah's prerogative and could not be challenged in courts – on any grounds.
