It was also understood that Anwar would announce the two deputy prime ministers.

However, the source said not all portfolios would be announced as negotiations with party heads are still ongoing.

"It's basically a juggling act so it is possible the Prime Minister needs more time," said the source.

Among those speculated to be deputy prime minister are Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) chief whip Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof.

Anwar will perform Friday prayers at the Masjid Muhammad Al-Fateh in the Tambun constituency, where he is MP.
