During Sultan Muhammad V’s reign from Dec 2016 until Jan 6, 2019, Malaysia has seen a change of government for the first time.

He also holds the record as the youngest to reign as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong as he was elected to the office at the age of 47.

But his resignation on Sunday has put the country in unfamiliar territory.
