KUALA LUMPUR, May 15 (Bernama) -- Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Wednesday had an audience with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah at Istana Negara, here, for consent on his new cabinet line-up.
The prime minister arrived at the palace in a black Proton Perdana at 11.55am and went straight to meet the King to present the list of cabinet members.
About 30 minutes later, the same car carrying Najib was seen leaving the palace grounds. About 20 media representatives had been waiting outside its main gate.
