ISTANA Negara is expected to issue an official statement this evening.

This was stated in a short text message broadcast by the palace earlier today.

“This is a broadcast message. We wish to inform you that Istana Negara will issue a statement at 6pm today,” said the message, which has been confirmed as true by a palace official

It did not specify what the statement would be about. Palace officials contacted were also tight-lipped when asked about the matter.

According to Malaysiakini, it is believed that the statement might have to do with either the latest update into the health of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah or on the country’s political polemics.

The King was admitted into the National Heart Institute last Monday, after he complained of feeling unwell.

A day later, opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim made an announcement claiming that he has managed to get majority support from MPs to form a government.

The PKR president had told the media then that Sultan Abdullah had granted him an audience, but it had to be postponed due to issues with the King’s health.
