malaysian prime minister

Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said on September 26 that he will resign before the next general election and that he will bring Malaysia’s economic and administrative mechanisms back on track for up to three years.

Mahathir said in a meeting hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations in New York on the 26th, “I promise to resign before the next general election and leave the opportunity to other candidates. So I may only have a maximum of three years as prime minister.”

Malaysia will hold a general election in 2023. Mahathir said, “I can’t guarantee that my successor will be competent or unable to do the job.” “But if we operate under the right system, I think we can achieve the goal of becoming a developed country by 2030.”

Anwar said that he expects to take over next year.

In the 2018 general election, Mahathir led the Pakatan Harapan to defeat the National Front (Barisan Nasional) and then became Prime Minister. At that time, he promised to hand over power to Anwar two to three years later, but there was no Indicates the exact date. When Anwar was interviewed by Bloomberg on September 18, he said he expected to take over as prime minister by May 2020.
