ALOR STAR — May 14, 2020: All 36 Kedah assemblymen will have an audience with the Sultan at Wisma Darul Aman on Friday following the likelihood of the state having a new mentri besar.
Assemblymen have confirmed receiving an invitation from Istana Anak Bukit to appear before Sultan Sallehuddin Ibni Almarhum Sultan Badlishah.
It is understood that they are required to appear at different times and not in a group.
The audience follows a crisis after PKR assemblymen Azman Nasrudin (Lunas) and Dr. Rober Ling (Sidam) quit the party on Tuesday and expressed support for the Perikatan Nasional federal government led by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
The same day state opposition leader Muhammad Sanusi Md. Nor stated that 23 of the 36 had lost confidence in Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir.
