King set to meet party leaders from tomorrow

PETALING JAYA: A series of high-level meetings is set to take place this week, potentially charting a new political landscape amid the ongoing Emergency Proclamation that is due to expire in August.

It is understood that Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah has granted audiences to party heads beginning tomorrow.

According to sources in the upper echelons of politics, the first audience that the King has granted is to Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia tomorrow.

It is also understood that after Bersatu, the King will meet with DAP and PKR on Thursday, and subsequently Parti Pejuang Tanah Air and Umno on Friday.

“The King just wants to listen and to allow them to air their views, ” said the source briefly.

Speculation has been rife on the political scene after Datuk Khairuddin Abu Hassan, a Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad loyalist, sent out a vague tweet that the King has granted audiences to heads of major political parties.

“Overall, the people have high hopes on the wisdom of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong and the Malay Rulers to find a unity formula to rebuild Malaysia again for the well-being of the nation, state and religion, ” he said.
