Daulat Tuanku! Daulat Tuanku! Daulat Tuanku!

My deepest condolences to the bereaved family of Allahyarham Tuanku Jaafar.
May he rest in peace and May the Good Lord bless his soul.
However, the Lord Giveth and the Lord taketh away - and we do need to move on

NB: What follows isn't in any way meant to underscore the importance of the period of mourning in any way.

tunku mukhriz tuanku munawirTunku Mukhriz, 59, was selected by a four-member council of ruling chiefs in the state, or better known as datuk datuk undang, through a tradition that began about 250 years ago by the Minangkabau settlers who hailed from Sumatra in the 15th century.

Negri Sembilan customs on electing the ruler is different compared to the hereditary monarch practice by the other Malay states.

The ruler is selected by the Council of Undangs from four of the state's biggest districts - Sungai Ujong, Jelebu, Johol and Rembau.

Tunku Mukhriz was picked among three other likely candidates - the late Negri Sembilan ruler’s son, Tunku Laxamana Tunku Naquiyuddin Tuanku Ja'afar, Tunku Muda Serting Tunku Imran Tuanku Ja'afar and Tunku Panglima Besar Tunku Putera Nadzaruddin Tuanku Ja'afar.

The announcement was made at the Istana Besar Seri Menanti in Kuala Pilah at 3.50pm.
