Malaysian opposition party (PKR) president, Anwar Ibrahim, announced earlier today that his party has sufficient support (a strong majority) to form a new government.

He also adds that the “existing government under Muhyiddin Yassin has fallen”, and announced that he has the support of the king to push the new government formation forward.

His meeting with the king was scheduled for Tuesday (yesterday), but was delayed as the king was undergoing medical treatment at the National Heart Institute (IJN).

“With a solid and convincing majority, it means that as of this moment, the government of (Prime Minister) Muhyiddin Yassin has fallen,” he told a press conference in Kuala Lumpur this afternoon.
