In a virtual press conference this evening, Muhyiddin was asked to comment about Anwar’s meeting with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong this morning.

“My concern is not about that meeting. When he (Anwar) was at the meeting I was having a video conference with members of the National Security Council (NSC) discussing Covid-19 issues,” he said.

Earlier, Anwar had an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to inform the latter to that he has sufficient majority in Parliament to unseat Muhyiddin as the prime minister.

“I leave it to the wisdom of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. Tuanku is a wise man, understanding from the point of view of his role as the di-Pertuan Agong. The provisions in the constitution and so on are the full power of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.”

“So we have to trust him to decide what should be decided,” he said in a press conference held virtually from his residence today.
