Anwar Ibrahim is meeting other political leaders from Pakatan Harapan component parties PKR, DAP and Amanah tonight, according to his aide
The meeting comes after a day of intense political speculation about the collapse of Pakatan Harapan and the formation of a new coalition by PPBM, Umno, PAS and some from PKR.
Anwar, who is PKR president, had said this evening that there had been an attempt to betray Pakatan Harapan and speculated that some changes might be announced tomorrow.
His political secretary Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak said Anwar’s meeting with other coalition members was being held at an undisclosed location.
Farhash said it was too early to make any speculation about a possible new “backdoor government” as efforts to do so had not yet been successful.
“If it was successful they would have announced it. There’s nothing yet.
He said the formation of a new government was the prerogative of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
“This is under the discretion of the Agong, whether backdoor or clean mandate. Right now, it looks like the (government’s) status remains,” he told reporters when met outside Anwar’s residence.
He confirmed that Anwar and his wife, Deputy Prime Minister Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, would be at Istana Negara at 2.30pm tomorrow for an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
He said the audience had been requested some time ago and was a courtesy call to brief the King about current political affairs.
PKR deputy president Azmin Ali, who was at a dinner attended by party leaders of PPBM, PAS, Umno, and some MPs of PKR, held an hour-long meeting with supporters after the dinner. He said he would continue with the reform agenda.
Azmin remained tight-lipped about today’s events and did not respond when asked about the accusation that he was the “betrayer”.

Kapar MP Abdullah Sani Abdul Hamid has warned “betrayers” of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government that they will be punished by the people who gave them the mandate to rule.
He said the parties who had been plotting to form a backdoor government were the “true traitors” after giving support to the PH government initially.
When pressed further about who the “betrayers” were, he simply said, “Azmin Ali”.
Abdullah Sani was among the MPs and party leaders who were present at Anwar Ibrahim’s residence in Segambut for a prayer session this evening.
Other who attended were Anwar’s wife, Deputy Prime Minister Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, PKR Balik Pulau MP Muhammad Bakhtiar Wan Chik, Kuantan MP Fuziah Salleh, former PKR deputy president Syed Husin Ali, Wangsa Maju MP Dr Tan Yee Kew, Batu MP P Prabakaran and Lembah Pantai MP Fahmi Fadzil.
The party had called on supporters of its president, Anwar, to rally at his home amid intense speculation that supporters of Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad were planning a new political realignment.
In a Facebook post on its official page, PKR said: “They plan, God (Allah) also plans. God is the best planner.”

When asked if PKR has backup plans, Abdullah Sani said “Don’t worry we are already on standby, and we are prepared — everything.”
Asked if PKR would be ready in the event of a snap election, he said the party was “always ready”.
When asked how many within PKR were “traitors”, he merely described them as “two or three mosquitoes” that would be swatted later on.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who is also Anwar’s wife, is in the residence now.
Dr Wan Azizah had been the president of PKR since it was founded until Anwar took on the post uncontested in party polls in 2018.
Anwar’s political secretary Farhash Wafa Salvador Rizal Mubarak said Anwar left his residence around 10.30pm for what is believed to be a closed-door meeting with PH party heads.
