JOHOR BAHRU, June 27 (Bernama) -- The Sultan of Johor today called on all people's representatives in the state to undertake their responsibilities in being the voices of their constituents, and not act in their own interests.

"Therefore, undertake your duties with honesty and sincerity, always placing the interests of the people and the state first, instead of personal interests or the interests of political parties," he said, stressing that as the ruler of the state, he would always observe the actions of assemblymen and caution them when necessary, to ensure the administration of the state was conducted well.  

The Sultan also urged the representatives to understand the history of Johor and strengthen their knowledge of state administrative matters so that decisions could be made with accuracy and consistency.....
