PKR president Anwar Ibrahim’s highly publicised audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong today turned out to be a less than half-hour affair.

He arrived at Istana Negara at about 10.30am amid hordes of photographers and reporters and left about an hour later.

Anwar had been gunning for today’s meeting since his statement on Sept 23, where he said he had secured a “formidable majority” to topple Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin’s seven-month-old government.

Last week, he said he was ready to provide details of his claim to having the support of MPs to Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah today.

A source told MalaysiaNow that the meeting today was “nothing unusual”.

“It was an ordinary audience between Anwar as the opposition leader and the king,” the source, who is close to the PKR leader’s inner circle, said.

The short duration of his meeting with Sultan Abdullah today – “less than 30 minutes”, according to a source – is a far cry from the hours of interviews the Agong had in February this year, days after the collapse of the Pakatan Harapan government.
