Statesman Anwar Ibrahim has been appointed as the tenth Prime Minister of Malaysia after Malaysia declared ending of the election deadlock.
King Al-Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah of Malaysia in an official announcement confirmed the news and stated that Anwar would be sworn in at 5 p.m. local time.
King also stated, “It is important that our nation is free of policy instability as the country needs a strong and stable government.”
He has urged the chosen members of parliament to keep serving the country effectively and expressed gratitude to state authorities for their support and advice in helping to resolve the problem.
The former deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim served as leader of the opposition for 20 years amidst jail terms and political takeovers and had been waiting for the post for more than 20 years.
Anwar Ibrahim was fighting the election against the ex-premier of Malaysia Muhyiddin Yassin.
The Southeast Asian nation had three prime ministers in as many years and was at risk of continuing its political unrest due to the election uncertainties.
Moreover, important policy choices that would aid in economic recovery were also at risk of being put off.
