KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 25): The Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah hopes that the best solution for Malaysia’s political conundrum will be found.

"Let me do the duties. I hope we will find the best solution for the country," he told reporters camped at the entrance of Istana Negara here.

He was personally distributing bags of McDonald’s to surprised journalists during lunch time today.

Yesterday, Istana Negara officials delivered bags of KFC to reporters who were waiting by the palace gates.

Earlier, Datuk Pengelola Bijaya Datuk Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin told the press in a special briefing at Istana Negara that 90 MPs have been summoned for a personal interview with the Agong starting 2.30pm, while the rest will be called tomorrow.

All MPs will be interviewed one-by-one by the Agong himself to determine who commands the majority in the Dewan Rakyat to become the next prime minister.
