The government will see if there was any “interference” from the Johor palace into the Federal Government's effort to lower the age limit for youths to 30, says Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Dr Mahathir told reporters that at the Parliament lobby on Thursday, adding that if there had been interference from the palace, then “We will study and see the reasons given, if they are acceptable or not”.

Asked on the different age limits between the Federal and the Johor state government, Dr Mahathir said this could be due to the age of members in organisations.
