KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 23 — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is scheduled for an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong tomorrow to provide normal updates on politics, the PKR president’s aide confirmed today amid speculation of political manoeuvres for federal power.

Anwar’s political secretary, Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak, also said the meeting was “scheduled a long time ago”.

“No, just normal updates. Like I mentioned it was scheduled a while ago,” he told Malay Mail when contacted to confirm the audience.

When asked if Anwar will be meeting the Agong alone, Farhash said that was what had been planned.

Reporters have been waiting outside Anwar’s residence in Kuala Lumpur since this evening.

Earlier today, the presidents of Bersatu, Umno, PAS, Gabungan Parti Sarawak, and Parti Warisan Sabah had an unannounced audience with the Agong.
