ABC News speaks to Malaysian MP Wong Chen and the Merdeka Centre’s Ibrahim Suffian in the wake of Anwar Ibrahim’s claims he’s secured a “formidable” majority from lawmakers to oust Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin and form a new government (video above).
Malaysia could be set for more political upheaval just months after a new prime minister came to power, Al Jazeera reports. Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim says he has gathered enough support in parliament to remove Muhyiddin Yassin and form a new government. The challenge comes as Muhyiddin’s coalition tries to salvage the economy, which has been badly hit by the pandemic.
