Pakatan Rakyat leaders will seek an audience with the king should Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi decline to meet them to discuss a peaceful transition of power by Barisan Nasional.
PKR information chief Tian Chua said this may happen as soon as within the next 24 to 48 hours.
“We’ve already said that we have the numbers, and Anwar just nowrevealed we have more than 31 Barisan Nasional MPs,” said Chua, in reference to a press conference held earlier this afternoon.
In the event they do meet Abdullah but he refuses to resign, he said Pakatan may seek the intervention of the Agong, Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin to persuade him to step down.
“As much as possible, however, we will try to avoid dragging the king into this,” Chua said when contacted.
