Anwar to meet Agong at 2.30pm - PKR sources


Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim is expected to meet the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah today.

Multiple PKR sources told Malaysiakini that the ruler has granted the Port Dickson MP an audience at 2.30pm.

The meeting is expected to take place at Istana Abdulaziz in Kuantan, Pahang.

PKR information chief Fahmi Fadzil, however, said he had no information on the matter.

This comes amid a brewing constitutional crisis between the ruler and the Perikatan Nasional government.

The Agong on Thursday (July 29), through Istana Negara, publicly reprimanded the government for allegedly misleading Parliament and acting unconstitutionally.

This was after the federal government revoked the emergency ordinances without the ruler's assent.

The ruler had wanted the emergency ordinances to be debated in Parliament but the government refused.

The government is seen to be reluctant to allow any vote in Parliament due to its uncertain majority.

The emergency ordinances can be removed either by revocation by the government with the ruler's assent or be annulled in Parliament.

The administration has insisted that the Agong must comply with its advice to revoke the emergency ordinances. - Mkini
