Anwar Ibrahim Sworn in as Malaysia’s 10th Prime Minister

24 Nov 2022  |  Benar News
Anwar Ibrahim was sworn in as Malaysia's 10th prime minister on November 24, 2022, after the king resolved a hung parliament situation following the general election. Anwar, the leader of the Pakatan Harapan bloc, now leads a coalition government that includes UMNO, despite having campaigned against it. The king's decision was based on the need for a stable government to stimulate Malaysia's economy. Anwar's appointment was contested by Muhyiddin Yassin of Perikatan Nasional, who claimed to have majority support. The Barisan Nasional coalition, which had been in power for six decades, won only 30 seats. UMNO agreed to support the king's decision for a unity government. Anwar's political journey has been marked by legal challenges and comebacks, including a sodomy conviction that was later overturned and a corruption conviction. Analysts view Anwar's appointment positively, emphasizing the need for an inclusive government and economic stability.

Malaysian General Election Could Result in Hung Parliament Amid Tight Race

18 Nov 2022  |  Benar News
Malaysians are preparing for a general election that could result in a hung parliament due to a divided opposition and a ruling coalition seeking legitimacy after being ousted in the previous election over corruption allegations. Surveys by YouGov and Merdeka indicate a tight race with no clear majority. The electorate has expanded by 42 percent, including many first-time voters. The election features a record number of candidates, including the 97-year-old former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad. The ruling coalition, Barisan Nasional, seeks to regain power, while the opposition, led by Anwar Ibrahim's Pakatan Harapan and Muhyiddin Yassin's Perikatan Nasional, aims to capitalize on Barisan's declining popularity and internal issues. Key voter concerns include inflation, the potential recession, and clean governance. The election's outcome will significantly impact Malaysia's political stability and economic policies.

Malaysian election produces no clear winner; two opposition blocs neck-and-neck

22 Nov 2019  |  Benar News
Malaysia's recent election did not produce a decisive winner, with the coalitions led by Anwar Ibrahim and former Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin nearly tied, and the historically dominant Barisan Nasional facing a significant loss. Both Anwar and Muhyiddin claimed they had enough support to form a government, though neither secured the 111 seats needed for a majority. The Election Commission's results showed Pakatan Harapan leading with 82 seats, closely followed by Muhyiddin's Perikatan Nasional with 79 seats. The election saw high voter turnout, with over 15 million votes cast out of 21 million eligible voters. The king of Malaysia will ultimately decide which coalition can form the government. The election was held for 220 out of 222 parliamentary seats due to one candidate's death and a weather-related suspension.
