KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 6 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has arrived at Istana Negara to meet Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah.

He was seen waving to the press gathered at the palace gates and gave them a thumbs-up from inside his car, according to a report by The Star.

He is said to have entered the palace through its main entrance at 3.49pm.

Earlier, Bernama had reported Ismail Sabri as saying that he would discuss matters related to the dissolution of Parliament in order to make way for the upcoming general elections (GE15) with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong only if there was time.

“Not really sure if we will discuss it (dissolution of Parliament) or not.

“If the discussion on Cabinet matters takes too much time or runs until Maghrib prayer, there will be no time to discuss other agenda,” he was quoted as saying.

He reportedly said that the audience scheduled with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong was a weekly routine between them to discuss matters related to the Cabinet before its meeting is held.

Today’s meeting is reported to last longer than usual as Ismail Sabri said that there are many issues to that he wishes to share with the Agong.
