Guan Eng to meet with Agong this afternoon

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng is set to have an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong this afternoon, according to the party's national organising secretary Anthony Loke.

"The audience is scheduled for the afternoon of Wednesday, June 9, 2021, at the Istana Negara," Loke said in a brief statement.

Today, Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin was granted an audience by the Agong prior to the cabinet meeting, which usually starts at 9.30am.

Yesterday, Khairuddin Abu Hassan, a member of the opposition's committee lobbying for an end to the state of emergency, said the king had agreed to a meeting with the leaders of all political parties.

Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim and former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad have also received invitations from Istana Negara for audiences with the king, but the exact times have yet to be ascertained.

It is understood that the Covid-19 pandemic situation and the ending of the emergency are among the issues expected to be discussed at the meetings.
