Malaysian king appointed prime minister this Thursday leader of the reformist opposition, Anwar Ibrahim, who put an end to the uncertainty that arose after the general election, which ended in a deadlock in parliament. Anwar will take office at the end of the day.

Anwar Alliance of Hope Wins Saturday Election winning 82 placesless than the 112 needed to form a majority.

Former Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin of the National Alliance won 73 seats, while his ally, the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, became the largest party with 49 seats.

Anwar emerged victorious after other smaller blocs agreed to support him in forming a government of national unity. His rise to the top will ease public fears of further Islamization of the multi-racial nation if Muhyiddin comes to power.
