All party leaders have left PMO, outcome uncertain

PUTRAJAYA (Feb 25): Leaders of various parties who paid a visit to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) this morning had all left the premises by lunch time, as the political uncertainties in the country entered its third day.

The leaders included former PKR deputy president Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, Bersatu president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang together with Terengganu Menteri Besar Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar, Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and former vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, as well as PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Earlier, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail turned up at the deputy prime minister’s office to clear her things. She was accompanied by her daughter, PKR MP Nurul Izzah Anwar.

Only interim prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir has yet to be seen leaving his office.

The party leaders are believed to be heading to Istana Negara as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah was said to be interviewing all MPs one by one to ascertain who commands the majority of the Dewan Rakyat to form the government and subsequently appoint a prime minister.

Comptroller of the Royal Family and Household Datuk Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin said in a special media briefing at Istana Negara today that 90 MPs have already been called to the palace starting 2.30pm.

The rest of them will be called tomorrow.

So far, no leaders have stopped to talk to the media, as they remain tight-lipped about the purpose of their meeting with the interim prime minister.
