“Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al- Mustafa Billah Shah will be granting an audience to PAS president Abdul Hadi sometime this week, as he has received an invitation from Istana Negara.

“The letter was sent to Abdul Hadi on June 4 to his PAS office in Terengganu. I am not at liberty to say when the audience will take place.

“I also do not know what will be discussed during the meeting, ” said Takiyuddin when contacted on Tuesday (June 8).

Earlier, former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was reported to have also received an invitation from Istana Negara for an audience with the King.

Parti Pejuang Tanah Alir pro-tem information chief Ulya Aqamah Husamudin said Dr Mahathir, who is the party’s pro-tem chairman, is scheduled to have an audience with Sultan Abdullah on Thursday (June 10).

“We received the official letter to have an audience with the King last week. However, we have yet to find out the exact time of the meeting, ” he told Bernama.

It is understood that the King had granted audiences to leaders of major political parties and it is believed that the meetings will discuss the current political landscape.
