Muhyiddin Yasin, who was appointed prime minister by the King of Malaysia Sultan Abdullah Riayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah to end the government crisis in Malaysia for about a week, took his official vow.
Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yasin , who went to the royal palace Istana Negara in the capital Kuala Lumpur at 10.00 am local time , took an oath in the throne room of the palace, swearing in the presence of Sultan Abdullah.
In the statement made from the royal palace after the ceremony, it was announced that Muhyiddin Yasin was the 8th prime minister of Malaysia .
Muhyiddin, who served as interior minister in the government of Prime Minister Mahathir Muhammed, who resigned last week , was appointed by Sultan Abdullah as prime minister.
Mahathir, who was once again nominated as prime minister by the parties of the former ruling coalition, objected to Muhyiddin's prime minister, stating that he supported 114 parliamentarians.
Mahathir, who did not attend the vowing ceremony of Muhyiddin, said that he was betrayed in a press release before the ceremony and claimed that Muhyiddin had planned the project of establishing a new ruling coalition with the opposition parties.
Mahathir claimed that although he had the majority of the parliament to form the government, Sultan Abdullah did not meet him, "We have the majority of deputies. 114 deputies support us." said.
Stating that they will request a parliamentary session to see if Muhyiddin can get the vote in the parliament, Mahathir said, "Muhyiddin does not have a majority in the parliament. If he cannot get the vote, he will not be able to form the government." He spoke in the form.
"I refused to work with politicians undergoing an investigation of corruption. That's why I can't work with the UMNO party," Mahathir asked the question of why he stopped working with Muhyiddin, with whom he belonged to the same party. He gave the answer.
