It’s official, Muhyiddin sworn in as PM8

Muhyiddin Yassin takes his oath of office at Istana Negara today.

KUALA LUMPUR: Muhyiddin Yassin has taken his oath in front of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah, becoming the 8th Malaysian prime minister following what has been described as the longest week in Malaysian politics.
After meeting 222 MPs and dozens of political leaders, Sultan Abdullah named Muhyiddin, 73, as the person who is “likely to command the confidence of the majority of the members of the (lower) House”, as spelt out under Article 40 of the constitution.
By yesterday evening, it was apparent that Muhyiddin, who was sacked as deputy prime minister in 2015 for questioning some RM2.6 billion deposited into the private accounts of his boss Najib Razak, had the support of most PPBM members, as well as the solid backing from Barisan Nasional and PAS. Sarawak’s ruling coalition GPS also backed Muhyiddin.

Muhyiddin Yassin inks his signature on his appointment letter at Istana Negara.

While the numbers appear to be neck-to-neck, Muhyiddin’s swearing-in today is likely to see more MPs coming into his folds.
Separately, former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, whose comeback bid was thwarted after an eleventh-hour move by PH leaders to re-nominate him to lead a revived coalition government, conceded that PH has reverted to becoming the opposition. - FMT
