KUALA LUMPUR: PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim spent about an hour at Istana Negara for his audience with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah on Tuesday (Oct 13).

The Port Dickson MP arrived in a black luxury car at about 10.25am and left the palace at 11.30am. It is believed that his audience with the King lasted about 30 minutes.

Scores of media practitioners were waiting in front of the palace gates from as early as 8am.

Anwar, who was seated at the back seat, waved at members of the press as he was leaving.

A group of supporters wearing the Otai Reformis T-shirts were also present, and shouted in support of Anwar.

Police personnel were present to keep the peace.

Using loud hailers, the police reminded everyone present at the palace gates to maintain physical distancing and to wear face masks.
