KOTA KINABALU: Communications Minister Fahmi Fadzil was granted an audience by the Yang di-Pertua Negeri of Sabah Tun Juhar Mahiruddin at Istana Seri Kinabalu here Monday (June 10) to present the instrument of royal invitation to the Coronation of His Majesty Sultan Ibrahim, King of Malaysia.

Fahmi, who is also the chairman of the Special Committee for the King's Coronation Events, said representatives from Istana Negara were also present. The Coronation will be held at Istana Negara on July 20.

He said during the 45-minute audience, Juhar shared several views, imparting advice on good governance in addition to the importance of political stability.

"This is the third presentation of the instrument of royal invitation, and Insya Allah, it will continue on Wednesday in Sarawak,” he told reporters at Istana Seri Kinabalu.
