KUALA LUMPUR: MIC president Tan Sri SA Vigneswaran was seen leaving Istana Negara at 11.40am after having an audience with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah.

He did not stop to speak to the media.

It is believed that he had an audience with the King after Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The King is also expected to grant an audience to the leader of Sabah's PBS on Friday (June 11), the third day of meetings with political leaders to deliberate the current political landscape and the Covid-19 pandemic.

His Majesty had met Parti Pejuang Tanah Air pro tem chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong, PAS deputy president Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, Parti Warisan Sabah president Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal.

These meetings were followed by audiences with PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, Parti Amanah Negara president Mohamad Sabu.

Gabungan Parti Sarawak is expected to have a video audience with the King next Monday (June 14).

Earlier this week, it was reported that the King had scheduled audiences with several political leaders beginning Wednesday (June 9), where it is believed that they are deliberating the current political landscape amidst the Emergency Proclamation that is due to expire on Aug 1.

After meeting with political leaders, Istana Negara had stated on Tuesday that the King will hold another special meeting involving the Malay Rulers on Wednesday (June 16), which is the second such meeting being held by the King.
