Anwar Ibrahim named as new Malaysian PM
All MPs are also reminded to stand in solidarity, give their commitment and give priority to the service of the people.
Malaysia had been in a political impasse following the inconclusive results of a snap national election on 19 November, in which no political coalition or party secured enough seats in the lower house of parliament to form a government on its own.
To break the impasse, the king held several meetings with the heads of the major political alliances and called a conference of rulers to deliberate on the matter.
Following the meeting, Anwar, whose PH coalition won the most seats in Saturday’s election with 82, was named as the Southeast Asian country’s new premier, leading to the formation of a new government.
