ATTORNEY-GENERAL

The Attorney-General is, in simple terms, the government’s head lawyer. In Malaysia, the Attorney-General is selected by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on the advice of the Prime Minister (article 145 of the Federal Constitution). To be considered for such an appointment, the Attorney-General should be a Malaysian citizen and a lawyer handling cases in the Superior Courts of Malaysia, or a member of Malaysia’s judicial and legal services for the past 10 years (article 123 of the Federal Constitution).

The Malaysian Attorney General also holds other positions such as Chairman of the Legal Profession Qualifying Board, member of the Judicial and Legal Service Commission as well as the Pardon’s Board in each state (article 42(5) of the Federal Constitution).
