Bukit Aman has called PKR president Anwar Ibrahim to give his statement tomorrow on the list of 121 MPs who supposedly support him to form a new government.

Criminal Investigation Division director Huzir Mohamed said police have so far received 113 reports on the matter.

“The investigation is being conducted under Section 505 (b) of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act,” he said in a statement today.

Anwar was initially supposed to be questioned on Monday. However, Huzir said police were informed by the PKR leader’s private secretary that he could only come on Oct 13, at 9am – two hours before he was expected to meet the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to present proof of his claim to having majority support.

The appointment was subsequently postponed.

Last week, Anwar said Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah had consented to a royal audience tomorrow, at which he would furnish details of his claim to having “formidable and convincing” majority support from MPs to form the government.

However, the palace said after his audience on Tuesday that Anwar had submitted no names, only the number of MPs whose support he claimed to have.
