Muhyiddin Yassin has tendered his resignation as Malaysia’s prime minister but will stay on in a caretaker role until a successor is found.
Yassin became prime minister in March 2020, after he and several members of parliament switched sides and brought down the reformist government.
The palace said on Monday that holding elections is not currently feasible because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
