PETALING JAYA: Sultan Muhammad V has offered to reduce his salary and emoluments by 10% until his reign as Yang Di-Pertuan Agong ends in 2021.  

“His Majesty was touched and appreciates the efforts of Malaysians who have donated to the Tabung Harapan,” he said in a statement on Monday (June 11).  

He added that Sultan Muhammad V has also decreed that he would not be hosting the annual Hari Raya Aidilfitri Open House this year, as he preferred that the budget allocated for it should be channelled to help the needy.
