King has received Cabinet list

PETALING JAYA: The Yang di-Pertuan Agong has accepted the presentation of the new Cabinet list from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Istana Negara said Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah had granted an audience to Ismail Sabri at Istana Abdulaziz in Kuantan yesterday.

“During the royal audience, which lasted about an hour and 30 minutes, the King accepted the presentation of the new Cabinet list from the Prime Minister following his swearing-in as the ninth Prime Minister on Aug 21,” Istana Negara said in a statement.

The newly-minted Prime Minister was supposed to have presented the list to the King for approval on Wednesday, but it was understood the audience was postponed as His Majesty is in Kuantan.

This audience was the second for Ismail Sabri as Prime Minister.

The first was his swearing-in ceremony at Istana Negara on Aug 21.

After the royal audience, the King and the Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah also granted a luncheon session to the Prime Minister at Istana Abdulaziz.
