The other two top leaders in Anwar Ibrahim’s Pakatan Harapan (PH) coalition will not be having a royal audience with the Agong today.

DAP’s Lim Guan Eng and Amanah’s Mohamad Sabu said they were informed by Istana Negara that their appointments with the king had been postponed.

They did not indicate if they had been given a new date.

This comes a day after the media drama outside Istana Negara in Kuala Lumpur where Anwar, the PKR president who heads PH, was granted a 25-minute audience at which he was supposed to present proof of his claim that he has the majority to topple Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.

It is believed that the only other senior politician summoned to meet Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah was veteran politician and Umno adviser Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.

Eyebrows were raised yesterday after the palace contradicted Anwar’s statement that he had handed over “authentic documents” to the Agong to show he has the numbers in the Dewan Rakyat.

The Comptroller of the Royal Family and Household in a statement said Anwar had only stated the total number of MPs without giving their names.

“He did not present the list of the MPs to strengthen the claim,” the palace said.
