What Will Come Of Anwar’s Audience With The Agong?

Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim finally had an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong yesterday morning, 3 weeks after he first announced that he had the support of a “convincing majority” of MPs.  However his bid to become the Prime Minister of Malaysia is far from certain as after the press conference, it was revealed that the Agong would be meeting with the respective political parties to ascertain their support. Meanwhile Umno issued a press statement stating it is considering withdrawing its support for Perikatan Nasional. To help us unpack all this, we spoke to Dr. Bridget Welsh, Honorary Research Associate, University of Nottingham Asia Institute.
