KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 15 (Reuters) – Malaysian police on Thursday said they had summoned opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim to assist investigations into a viral list of federal lawmakers allegedly backing his bid to claim the premiership. Anwar on Tuesday met with King Al-Sultan Abdullah in a bid to prove he has a “convincing” parliamentary majority to form a new government. Anwar had been asked to give a statement on Friday over complaints filed with the police about a list of 121 lawmakers said to be backing his bid for the premiership, which had gone viral on social media, criminal investigation department director Huzir Mohamed said in a statement. “To date, a total of 113 police reports have been received,” Huzir said of the complaints.
