Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah has summoned the 30 Barisan Nasional (BN) MPs for an audience at Istana Negara tomorrow at 10.30am.
In a statement by Comptroller of the Royal Household Datuk Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin, this latest development follows an audience earlier between the King and the leaders of Pakatan Harapan (PH) and Perikatan Nasional (PN).
The individual audience session tomorrow is in line with Section 43(2)(a) of the Federal Constitution which gives the Agong the power to appoint a Prime Minister whom he feels has majority support in Parliament.
Istana Negara earlier today summoned Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin for an audience with the King at 4.30pm.
This was after the King found that none of the Prime Minister candidates submitted to the palace appear to command the support of a simple majority.
Following the 15th General Election (GE15) last Saturday, PH currently has 82 seats in Parliament while PN has 73.
BN has 30 seats but Umno vice president Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob earlier today said the coalition would not be supporting PH or PN to form a government and would remain as the opposition.
