Over the last 15 years the Malaysian monarchies (constituting about a fifth of all extant monarchies globally) have re-established themselves not only reputationally but also as important elements in the Malaysian political system.

The explanation is found, partly at least, in the absence of effective corrective mechanisms elsewhere in the political system.
