This comes after Istana Negara Facebook page on Tuesday showed four photos the Yang Pertuan Agong, Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah with the Tambun MP.
This was accompanied by a brief statement stating that His Majesty will be meeting Anwar at 5pm, strengthening speculation that the full list of the Unity Government's cabinet had already been presented, said Sinar Harian.
Meanwhile, according to sources, the Prime Minister will hold a press conference to announce the line up. "If you go by the Prime Minister's previous statement, he will indeed announce it himself. So we are still waiting for that time and day (announcement).
"Most probably tomorrow. But we wait for Anwar's announcement," the source told Sinar Harian.
Anwar has so far said the Cabinet size will be smaller and had proposed for ministers salaries to be cut as people face increasing cost of living.
Pas secretary-general Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan said the party needed to look at the grounds of judgment of the nullification of the result before deciding to file an appeal. - BERNAMA FILE PIX
