A source in Anwar's office denied this, saying that the Opposition leader has a scheduled virtual meeting with his Parliament staff at 3pm on Saturday.
"There is no meeting today. Usually when Parliament sits, he will organise meetings with his Parliament staff," said the source briefly.
PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil also denied that Anwar is having an audience with the Agong on Saturday afternoon.
"That report is untrue. I request for the cooperation of the media in acquiring genuine information from accurate sources before publishing articles in order to avoid any confusion or misunderstanding," said Fahmi in a statement on Saturday (July 31).
Earlier on Saturday, Astro Awani, quoting sources, reported that the King had granted the Port Dickson MP an audience at 2.30pm.
However, sources at Istana Negara denied that an audience was granted to Anwar on Saturday.
"No such audiences this afternoon," said the source briefly.
Several PKR sources contacted by The Star also said they weren't aware that Anwar was scheduled to have an audience with the King on Saturday.
Pictures of Istana Negara denying news reports of such audiences were also disseminated to members of the media.
Astro Awani later quoted a source from Istana Negara in a separate report, denying that an audience was granted to Anwar on Saturday afternoon.
Recently, the Istana Negara rebuked the Perikatan Nasional government for contravening the Constitution when it revoked the Emergency Ordinances without his Majesty's consent.
There were calls for Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to resign as Prime Minister over the fiasco, but senior Perikatan leaders have come out in support, stressing that the present government still enjoys the support of more than 110 MPs.
