King urged BN MPs to form unity govt, says Zahid

PETALING JAYA: The King has advised Barisan Nasional MPs to be part of a unity government, says Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The Barisan chairman said that this was the decree by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah during an audience at Istana Negara earlier on Wednesday (Nov 23).

“Tuanku’s decree was to form a unity government,” Ahmad Zahid was quoted as saying to an online portal.

Ahmad Zahid, his deputy Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan and Barisan secretary-general Datuk Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir were granted an audience by the King on Wednesday.

However when questioned about Barisan's stand to not back any political pact to form a new governemt, Ahmad Zahid said that "The King did not order it".
