ANWAR MEETS AGONG TO CONFIRM PH's FULL SUPPORT FOR MAHATHIR
PKR president Anwar Ibrahim has met with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah to present Pakatan Harapan's statement letter of changing its stance to nominate Dr Mahathir Mohamad as prime minister instead.
The Port Dickson MP had earlier departed from Eastin Hotel in Petaling Jaya for the palace around 1.30pm.
"I'm going to the palace to present a letter of statement of Pakatan Harapan changing its stance to nominate Tun (Mahathir) instead of me.
"I am touched on the support that I received but once again I chose to prioritise the nation above personal agenda,” he told reporters at the hotel earlier, as reported by Malay Mail.
Around noon, Pakatan Harapan leaders from both DAP and Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah) also met with the Agong after they were summoned by His Majesty today.
