It has been reported that the Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has resigned from the post on Monday.
According to a report by a Malaysian media outlet, the 94-year-old recently elected PM sent his resignation letter to the King on Monday morning at 10:45 am PST.
As per the details, the clash has been taking place in Malaysia and the fate of the coalition government was in doubt after surprise talks between the political party of Mahathir Mohamad and other groups on forming a new government with Anwar Ibrahim, who had earlier named as his successor.
Mahathir Mohamad and Anwar Ibrahim are the old rivals in the Malaysian politics and their rivalry has shaped the politics in Malaysia for decades with tension persisting despite their alliance to with the general elections back in 2018 based on a promise that Mahathir Mohamad would one day transfer power to Anwar.
According to the details, Anwar Ibrahim, 72, accused the political party of Mahathir and other members of his own political party on Sunday of plotting to form a new Malaysian government with the United Malays National Organization, the ruling party that was ousted in 2018 elections on widespread accusations of the corruption.
It is worth mentioning here that the decision on when Mahathir stepped down will be made after he chairs the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in November.
