Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s audience with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah scheduled at Istana Negara tomorrow has been postponed.

Ahmad Zahid, when contacted via Telegram, confirmed the postponement but said that a new date had not been fixed.


“Postponed. New date not fixed,” the Bagan Datoh member of Parliament replied briefly.

Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan, after attending the party’s Supreme Council’s Political Bureau meeting late last night, told reporters that Ahmad Zahid was scheduled to have an audience with Al-Sultan Abdullah at 5pm tomorrow.

This came after Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was granted an audience with the King at Istana Negara yesterday after claiming to have secured the support of more than 120 members of Parliament to form a new government.
