PETALING JAYA: The King was in a cordial mood when he continued meeting with political party leaders to discuss the political landscape amidst the Emergency and showed his concern over the Covid-19 situation in the country, says Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.
The PAS deputy president, who had met with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah on Thursday (June 10) morning said the meeting lasted almost an hour where matters about the Emergency and reconvening the Parliament session also came up.
“Tuanku was very open and cordial when discussing the matters but his tone turned serious when we brought up matters concerning recent Covid-19 cases, ” he said in a statement later.
Tuan Ibrahim was representing party president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, who could not make it due to illness.
The Kubang Kerian MP and Environment and Water Minister arrived at Istana Negara around 10.20am and left about an hour later without addressing pressmen.
Tuan Ibrahim said PAS will continue aiding in the fight against Covid-19 and has ordered its machinery to mobilise all efforts to help push the country’s vaccination rollout and assist communities in need of aid.
“On behalf of PAS, I thank the King for granting us an audience to present our stand on current matters, ” he said.
The King started meeting political party leaders on Wednesday (June 9) to discuss the new political landscape amidst the Emergency that is scheduled to end on Aug 1.
He has since met with Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who is also Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia president.
Opposition leaders including PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng and Parti Amanah Negara chief Mohamad Sabu also had an audience with the King on Wednesday (June 9).
The King continued granting audiences to other leaders on Thursday including MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong, Parti Pejuang Tanah Air pro-tem chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Parti Warisan Sabah president Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal.
