The unity government will uphold the monarchy, ensure the well-being of the people and will not sideline any states, says Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

In his congratulatory speech to Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah on Monday (June 5) in conjunction with the celebration of His Majesty's official birthday, Anwar credited the idea of a unity government to the King's wisdom.

Anwar, on behalf of the government, also said that the government will not compromise or allow the monarchy to be mocked or criticised in the name of freedom, adding that the government will defend and ensure that appropriate action is taken on anyone threatening the monarchy and the supremacy of the Federal Constitution.
