The administration of the 13 states is carried out by rulers or governors acting on the advice of State Executive Councils. Each state has its own constitution and a unicameral State Assembly that shares legislative powers with the federal Parliament. The supreme head of the federation and the deputy paramount ruler are chosen for five-year terms by and from among the nine hereditary rulers of the Malay states, who, along with the heads of state of Malacca, Penang, Sabah, and Sarawak, constitute the Conference of Rulers. In 1993, with the reluctant agreement of the rulers, constitutional amendments were enacted that curbed royal legal immunities; a further restriction in 1994 ended the paramount ruler's authority to block legislation) - http://library.cqpress.com/phw/document.php?id=phw2013_Malaysia&type=toc&num=5&PHPSESSID=t1uose1mnvffa29ik7tnnsgh61#
