Muhyiddin Yassin, who is also the President of Bersatu, was appointed as the Prime Minister on 29 February 2020 following the political crisis after the collapse of the PH government.
After resigning from his post, Muhyiddin Yassin, the caretaker Prime Minister, described the National Alliance government as capable of facing various challenges even in difficult circumstances.
Speaking during a farewell meeting with officials from the Prime Minister’s Office this morning, the Pagoh Member of Parliament said he and all members of the Cabinet under his administration did their best for the survival of the people.
“Even in difficult circumstances, (this government) is still able to continue,” Muhyiddin said.
