Nurul Izzah, and her husband Raja Ahmad Shahrir Iskandar Raja Salim are believed to have been persuaded to reconcile.
PETALING JAYA: The drama over Nurul Izzah Anwar's divorce took a new twist with news that she may be withdrawing her divorce petition Friday.
Nurul Izzah and her husband Raja Ahmad Shahrir Iskandar Raja Salim are believed to have been persuaded to reconcile.
She is expected to file her withdrawal petition at the lower Syariah Court in Jalan Duta, according to sources close to the family.
It is understood that family members had persuaded the couple to work things out after news broke online that Nurul had filed for divorce in late December.
Earlier, the PKR vice-president had refused to talk about reports that she had filed a divorce petition.
"I'm leaving now. Thank you for respecting my privacy," Nurul Izzah told reporters before leaving Asli’s 16th Malaysia Strategic Outlook Conference, here.
On Twitter, at around 2pm, Nurul Izzah was asked on Twitter by Mohd Saiful Ahmad (@msaiful82): "salam, betul ke akak tuntut fasakh....keluar news... (Did you ask for a divorce? It is out in the news)."
The Lembah Pantai MP replied: "wassalam. Nope."
It was reported that Nurul Izzah had filed a divorce petition against her husband, Raja Ahmad Shahrir Iskandar Raja Salim at the lower Syariah Court at Jalan Duta.
A check of court records by The Star Online showed that a divorce case exists between the PKR vice-president and her husband.
Nurul, 33, had sought the divorce under fasakh with Raja Ahamd Shahrir Iskandar, 35.
Her husband had asked for a two-week postponement of proceedings for him to enable him to prepare his case.
Court officials confirmed that their divorce case was in the system and Nurul and her husband were both parties in the suit.
They said that the case was set for mention before lower Syariah Court judge Ab Malek Awang.
