GE15: BN supreme council meeting on Nov 22 night

KUALA LUMPUR: A Barisan supreme council meeting is set to take place at the World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur (WTCKL) here on Tuesday (Nov 22) night.

Among those seen arriving for the meeting were MCA’s Tanjung Piai MP Datuk Seri Dr Wee Jeck Seng, Ayer Hitam MP Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong, PBRS deputy president Arthur Kurup, Cameron Highlands MP Datuk Ramli Mohd Nor and Sembrong MP Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein.

When asked by reporters, Hishammuddin merely said, “I’ll see you after the meeting.”

This follows another meeting of the Barisan supreme council Tuesday morning.

Barisan had informed the Yang di-Pertuan Agong that none of its MPs supported Perikatan Nasional chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to be the 10th prime minister.

“No Barisan MPs have given support for Muhyiddin’s candidacy as the 10th prime minister. This has been conveyed to His Majesty the King,” said Barisan secretary-general Datuk Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir in an earlier statement.

The King had also summoned all 30 Barisan Nasional MPs to Istana Negara on Wednesday (Nov 23) morning.

Each MP will have an individual audience with the King, starting from 10.30am, said Comptroller of the Royal Household Datuk Seri Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin in a statement on Tuesday (Nov 22).

This is the next step in Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah’s decision-making process after the audience with Pakatan Harapan chairman Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Muhyiddin at 4.30pm on Tuesday, he said.
