The Prime Minister left the Palace at 9.20am and headed off to attend an audience with the Deputy Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah.
Anwar, who has yet to form his Cabinet, is expected to announce his first few Cabinet members at about 5pm, after his first trip back to his constituency Tambun, Perak after being sworn in as the 10th Prime Minister.
Those appointed to the Cabinet are expected to be sworn in before the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on Saturday (Dec 3).
Barisan Nasional chairman and Umno president Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and Gabungan Parti Sarawak chief whip Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof have been mentioned as possible candidates for deputy prime minister.
