KUCHING, Feb 27: Interim Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is reportedly returning to his post as Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu)’s chairman.

The Prime Minister’s Office confirmed that he was summoned to meet Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah at 11am.

He was seen to have spent an hour in the palace and waved at reporters in the gate area.

Chief Justice Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat was also reported to have been summoned by the King. —DayakDaily
