PETALING JAYA: Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak says he did not attend the Yang di-Pertuan Agong's installation ceremony due to the required change of outfit following last-minute seat adjustments.

"No confusion but receive a call at 6.30am that there was a change of seat.

"Originally seated at seat Number 10, reserved for former prime minister under the ceremony protocol but was changed at the very last minute to the Orang Besar Pahang row, " he said in a Facebook posting.

Najib Razak, who is the Pekan MP, has a hereditary title from Pahang, the title Orang Kaya Indera Shahbandar, and is one of the Orang Besar Berempat.

Najib said the change of seat would require him to dress as Pahang nobleman.

"The ceremonial attire for Orang Besar Pahang and for the former prime minister is not same. Every position has its protocol, " he said.

"At that point, there was not enough time to get the attire from Pekan, " added Najib.

Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah was officially installed as the 16th Yang di-Pertuan Agong in a majestic ceremony steeped in royal custom and tradition at Istana Negara on Tuesday (July 30).

The installation ceremony, attended by eminent guests, took place at the Balairong Seri with Sultan Abdullah taking his Oath of Installation, marking the formal commencement of his tenure as the Supreme Head of the Federation.
