Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin today played down Anwar Ibrahim’s royal audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, saying he is more interested in reviving the economy and addressing the Covid-19 pandemic.

In an interview with several media outlets, his first since taking over Putrajaya in March, Muhyiddin said he has full confidence that the king would act based on the constitution.

“The Agong is the most learned and has his own way of doing things as provided by the constitution.”

Muhyiddin also said he had not been following the developments surrounding Anwar’s plan as he was busy meeting with members of the National Security Council when the Pakatan Harapan chief met the Agong.

“My interest now is anything about Covid and reviving the economy,” he added.

Muhyiddin’s comments come after conflicting statements from Anwar and Istana Negara on his royal audience with the Agong this morning.

Anwar said he had furnished “authentic documents” to prove that he has a “formidable” majority to topple Muhyiddin’s administration.

But the palace in a statement said Anwar had not furnished the list of names of the MPs he said were supporting him to form a new federal government.
