With Istana Negara having extended the deadline for the main coalitions to present their respective numbers and candidates for prime Minister by 22 November, BFM explores what are the obligations of the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong, as spelled out in the Federal Constitution, when faced with a hung Parliament.
