KUALA LUMPUR: Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah has treated the media fraternity camping outside Istana Negara to KFC.
Boxes of the popular fast food were handed to the press by representatives from the Palace to lift the spirits of media personnel on duty.
"The Yang di-Pertuan Agong himself has ordered for the food to be delivered to the members of the media outside the Palace gates," said the King's senior private secretary at the main gate of Istana Negara here on Monday (Feb 24).
Members of the media started to camp outside Istana Negara since Monday morning in anticipation of the arrivals of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.
This comes following a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office earlier this afternoon confirming that Dr Mahathir had resigned and that his resignation letter was sent to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong at 1pm.
