Muhyiddin to be interim PM until successor is chosen

In an earlier royal audience, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced his resignation as prime minister and the resignation of his cabinet, which was approved by Istana Negara.

According to a statement issued by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah, the former prime minister Muhyiddin will now serve as caretaker prime minister until a replacement, who commands a majority in the Dewan Rakyat, is appointed from among the House of Representatives.

In a 30-minute audience session that began at 12.30pm and lasted 30 minutes, His Majesty agreed to accept Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s letter of resignation as prime minister, as well as the resignation letters of the whole Cabinet, effective immediately.

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin will serve as caretaker prime minister until a new prime minister is chosen, according to a statement released on behalf of the King by Comptroller of the Royal Household Datuk Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin.
