KUALA LUMPUR – Istana Negara verified that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim did not submit the name list of the Members of Parliament (MPs) who had allegedly given their support to him.
On the contrary, the President of PKR only presented the number of MPs who supported him without naming them to strengthen his claim.
Therefore, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin AlMustafa Billah Shah Sultan Ahmad Shah had advised Anwar to obey and respect the law recorded in the Federal Constitution.
His Majesty has granted an audience to the Opposition Chief at 11.00 am today. The session took place for about 25 minutes.
