PETALING JAYA: DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng has been summoned to Istana Negara for an audience with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah on Wednesday (Oct 14).
A source confirmed Lim's meeting with the Agong but declined to provide further details on the meeting.
"Yes the meeting is set for Wednesday," the source said when contacted on Tuesday. (Oct 13).
Earlier on Tuesday at about 10.30am, PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim met with the Agong at Istana Negara in a meeting which lasted about 30 minutes.
The Port Dickson MP was granted an audience with the Agong on Sept 22 at 11am but the meeting was postponed as the Agong was under treatment at the National Heart Institute (IJN).
The meeting was supposed to have centred around Anwar's claims, which he made the following day on Sept 23, saying he had garnered “formidable and convincing” support from members of parliament to form a new government.
The Dewan Rakyat has 222 MPs and Anwar will need to show that he has the support of at least 112 MPs if he is to form a new government to replace the current Perikatan Nasional coalition.
