Sultan of Johor Warns GGK Officers Not to Engage in Politics to Obtain Ranks or Positions

Johor Sultan

MERSING, August 8 – The Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar has warned that there should be no Special Service Group (GGK) officers who engage in politics to obtain a certain rank or position.

“I hope that from now on the Army and the GGK Commanders will not be too clever to make their own decisions, please first propose the promotion and appointment of senior officers for me to be approved,” said His Majesty during the GGK’s 57th Anniversary Day (HUT) parade at the 21 GGK Headquarters Parade Ground, Kem Iskandar on Friday.

The Sultan of Johor, who is also the Colonel-in-Chief of GGK, warned that no party should try to divide the command unity by creating small camps or factional groups according to their respective directions and interests.

“We must all unite to form a strong, well-organized, perfect regiment, like the saying goes like lemongrass, well-organized like betel,

“In order to strengthen the GGK organization, more organized planning and development of human resources must be done so that quality backup officers can be produced continuously,” said His Majesty.

His Majesty said, the evaluation will be made according to merit and based on the background and performance report of the officer concerned and I do not want any element of favoritism or following a certain camp.

“I would also like to emphasize that all ranks and positions that have been assigned to GGK cannot be given or lent to other corps,

“Don’t look at this GGK with one eye, if there is any party that turns their back on me then it’s useless for me to continue to be the Colonel-in-Chief of the GGK command, don’t waste my time,” he said.

Also going to the ceremony, Tunku Temenggong Johor, Tunku Idris Iskandar Sultan Ibrahim.

The parade consisted of 18 officers and 173 GGK members, led by Colonel Normin Mohd Shahar accompanied by the GGK Combined Band and the Johor Military Force.
