Pakatan Harapan chairman Anwar Ibrahim has presented to the king a list of all the members of parliament who support his bid to be prime minister.
“I have given a document that contains a list of MPs who support me to the King today,” said Anwar at a press conference at a Le Meridien Hotel in Kuala Lumpur today.
He said the King would now go through the documents over the next couple of days and subsequently would call party leaders to obtain their input.
“Please give him time to meet with other party leaders to verify the list,” said Anwar.
He met Yang di-Pertuan Agung Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah at Istana Negara for 30 minutes this morning.
He arrived at Istana Negara at 10.25am and left at around 11am.
Present with Anwar were his wife Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and PKR secretary-general Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail.
