Perikatan Nasional (PN) has submitted a letter seeking an official meeting with Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob to discuss several issues raised by the coalition.
This was confirmed today by PN secretary-general Hamzah Zainudin, who said his previous meeting with the prime minister had been an informal one.
"I am a Cabinet member, so I always meet the prime minister, and when I met him last week, it was not official.
"That was a casual meeting where we just chatted, but officially I have requested for a new date for PN representatives to meet and present to him their demands," he said when met in Putrajaya.
On Aug 13, Ismail said he had held a meeting with PN two weeks ago, during the last week of the Dewan Rakyat sitting at the Parliament building, which was attended by Hamzah and PN treasurer Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar.
Asked if the issue of the deputy prime minister's post would be raised at the official meeting, Hamzah said he would bring up all of the requests made by PN.
