GPS leaders to have audience with King next week, says Sarawak CM's Office

KUCHING: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) leaders have received an invitation for an audience with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah next week.

In a brief statement, the Chief Minister's Office said it was contacted by Istana Negara on Wednesday (June 9) about the audience.

"His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Agong has invited and granted an audience to presidents of GPS component parties via video conferencing from this office on June 14 at 11am," the statement said.

It did not say what the meeting would discuss.

The four GPS component parties are Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB), Sarawak United People's Party (SUPP), Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) and Progressive Democratic Party (PDP).

The CMO statement comes amid reports that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong has granted an audience to political leaders from both sides of the divide, with a series of meetings set to take place starting today.

Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was seen leaving Istana Negara at 8.55am this morning after an hour-long audience with the King.

PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang and DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng were also reported to have received invitations for an audience with the King, although it was not known what time the meetings would take place.
