Ruler grants audience via video conference

Novel approach: Sultan Abdullah holding a meeting with Zulkifli via video conference at Istana Negara. — Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR: Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah granted an audience to Religious Affairs Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri via a 30-minute video conference at Istana Negara.

A posting on Istana Negara’s official Instagram page yesterday stated that normally an audience with His Majesty would take place face-to-face at the palace.

However, due to the implementation of the movement control order, Sultan Abdullah had consented to the audience and the weekly pre-Cabinet meeting to continue to be held via video conference throughout this period.

“This reflects Sultan Abdullah’s great concern for the country’s administration and people’s well-being, ” said the posting, which included two pictures of the video conference. — Bernama
