News | Agong accepts Muhyiddin’s resignation

The Yang di-Pertuan Agong accepted the resignation of Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin following a brief audience at the Istana Negara today, MalaysiaNow understands.

This is the second time the Malaysian government has collapsed since the 2018 general election, causing a power vacuum in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Muhyiddin’s resignation, which means the resignation of the government as well, was also confirmed by Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Khairy Jamaluddin in a post on his Instagram.

“The Cabinet has tendered our resignation to the Agong. Thank you for the opportunity to, once again, serve the nation.

“May God bless Malaysia,” said Khairy.
