Malaysia has elected Sultan Abdullah of Pahang as its new king after the shock abdication of the previous monarch.
Sultan Muhammad V of Kelantan abdicated in January after just two years on the throne, a first in Malaysian history.
The king, known as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, is largely ceremonial and does not participate in daily governance.
The Sultan of Pahang a large state in Peninsular Malaysia is expected to be sworn into his new role on January 31. He was only sworn in as Sultan of Pahang earlier this month.
