Malaysia’s king appoints Muhyiddin Yassin as prime minister

Malaysia’s king has picked Muhyiddin Yassin as the country’s next prime minister. Muhyiddin will be sworn in on March 1st. The decision comes five days after the resignation of 94-year-old Mahathir Mohamad, the world’s oldest head of government, who broke an alliance with Anwar Ibrahim that swept the former ruling party from power. Mahathir and Anwar announced Saturday they had joined hands again.
