KUALA LUMPUR: FMT brings live accounts as events unfold at Istana Negara amid a political vacuum in Putrajaya.

11.15am: There have been conflicting claims on who has the majority, with Anwar Ibrahim’s supporters saying the PKR leader is set to be sworn-in as PM. Pakatan Harapan top leaders are meeting at 1pm today.

11.10am: Dr Mahathir may not be sworn in as he is not wearing the Baju Melayu, which is a required palace protocol during a swearing-in ceremony.

11.00am: Dr Mahathir Mohamad, wearing a suit and a songkok, enters the palace grounds, ahead of his audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. It is not certain if he would be sworn-in, with conflicting claims on who has the majority support to head a new government.
