KUALA LUMPUR: The question of whether Barisan Nasional will request the postponement of their royal audience with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah will be known today (Nov 23).
“It’s not our habit to talk in public. Whether or not we request a postponement, you all will know tomorrow,” BN treasurer-general Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein told reporters after the Barisan supreme council meeting here on Tuesday (Nov 22) night.

Earlier on Tuesday, Al-Sultan Abdullah summoned the 30 BN MPs for an audience at Istana Negara individually at 10.30am on Wednesday (Nov 23).
Pakatan Harapan chairman Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Perikatan Nasional chairman Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had both been summoned by the King to Istana Negara at 4.30pm on Tuesday as no coalition had the majority following last Saturday’s general election.
