The Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah has accepted Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s resignation earlier on Monday as the seventh prime minister, but has now reappointed him to hold the position in the interim, Chief Secretary to the Government Datuk Seri Mohd Zuki Ali announced in the evening.

“Therefore, as the interim Prime Minister, he will manage the country’s administration until the new Prime Minister is appointed and the Cabinet is formed,” he said in a brief statement. Source: Malay Mail
