Political chiefs have found a consensus between parties after an audience with the Yang di-Petuan Agong on Tuesday, August 17.

Anwar Ibrahim said after a two-hour audience at the Istana Negara, leaders have settled to fight the economic crisis and ongoing Covid-19 battle.

He added, those in attendance shared their opinions and seemingly agreed there needs an end to the old political methods and focus on developing the nation.

The Port Dickson MP said, “The issue here is not just the appointment of a new Prime Minister. What’s more important for the Agong and his deputy is to form a new political landscape that is more peaceful for the people.”

Those attended were Anwar Ibrahim, Lim Guan Eng, Mohamad Sabu which forms the current Pakatan Harapan coalition. Others were Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir and Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.
