KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 1): Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said discussions on the appointment of the Cabinet lineup are nearly completed and hopes it can be announced soon.

Anwar, who is Pakatan Harapan (PH) chairman, also confirmed that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah has granted him an audience at Istana Negara at 8am on Friday (Dec 2).

“I apologise for having to rush to resolve all issues with all the component parties because we have to quickly form the Cabinet and get the consent of the King. I hope to announce it in two or three days’ time,” he said at a meet-and-greet session in Sungai Long, Kajang on Thursday (Dec 1) night.

The event was streamed live on his Facebook page.
