New Straits Times - - NEWS -

KUANTAN: Tengku Pan­glima Be­sar Pa­hang Tengku Has­sanal Ibrahim Alam Shah Sultan Ab­dul­lah could be made Tengku Mahkota Pa­hang.

Sources said this was be­cause it was tra­di­tion for the sultan’s el­dest son to be the crown prince.

Tengku Has­sanal Ibrahim Alam Shah was born on Sept 17, 1995, at Tengku Am­puan Afzan Hos­pi­tal.

He is the third child of Sultan Ab­dul­lah Sultan Ah­mad Shah and Tunku Az­izah Ami­nah Maimu­nah Iskan­dariah.

“Ac­cord­ing to tra­di­tion, the Tengku Pan­glima Be­sar is ap­pointed Tengku Mahkota Pa­hang, but an an­nounce­ment will be made by Sultan Ab­dul­lah only after the procla­ma­tion cer­e­mony to­mor­row.

“If there are spe­cial cir­cum­stances (such as Sultan Ab­dul­lah be­ing elected king), the Tengku Mahkota would have to be ap­pointed re­gent of Pa­hang.

“In that case, Sultan Ab­dul­lah may ap­point a spe­cial coun­cil as the Tengku Pan­glima Be­sar is fur­ther­ing his stud­ies at the Sand­hurst Royal Mil­i­tary Academy in the United King­dom for a year.

“The coun­cil may be put in place for be­tween one and five years, de­pend­ing on the sultan. Its mem­bers will be de­ter­mined by the sultan,” the sources said.
