Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir resigns

Breaking News

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammed on Monday has resigned from his post.

He has submitted a letter of resignation to Malaysia's king, his office, amid talk of constituting a new governing coalition. 

According to the Arab news agency, Mahathir Mohammad announced his resignation after political circumtances in the country and disagreements with former Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim.

"The letter has been sent to His Royal Highness the King at 1 pm," Mahathir's office said in a statement. 

Arab media said Mahathir Muhammad's party plans to form a new government in the country but it was not immediately clear if Mahathir could constitute another government with the support of other parties, but his party, Bersatu, has also quit the ruling coalition, its president, Malaysian home minister Muhyiddin Yassin said on Facebook. 

According to Arab media, differences between 94-year-old Mahathir Mohammed and 72-year-old former Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim intensified last week, after which the Malaysian prime minister announced his resignation.

It may be recalled that PPBM, the party of Mahathir Mohammed, won the elections on May 10, 2018 and ended the ruling party in Malaysia for 60 years.

94-year-old Mahathir Mohammed was then the world's oldest Prime Minister.
