Top guns from Barisan Nasional (BN) and Pakatan Harapan (PH) have arrived at the Seri Pacific Hotel to discuss about forming the new government.
According to a tweet by CNA reporter, Melissa Goh, the 30 BN MPs who were elected in GE15 were told to meet BN chairman Ahmad Zahid Hamidi there.
According to The Vibes on Twitter, UMNO secretary-general Ahmad Maslan arrived at around 9:30am while Amanah president Mohammad Sabu arrived not long after with his deputy Salahuddin Ayub and Malacca chief Adly Zahari.
