Kuala Lumpur. Ismail Sabri Yaakob, the newly-appointed Prime Minister of Malaysia, has been quarantined after coming in contact with a corona-infected person. However, it is not clear in the information released by the office how many days the Prime Minister will be quarantined. It is also not clear in this report whether the Prime Minister has got corona or not. Let us tell you that Ismail Sabri was sworn in as the Prime Minister earlier this month. He replaces former PM Muhyiddin Yassin, who resigned after failing to secure a majority in parliament.
With Yakub becoming the prime minister, the political party that has been in power for a long time in Malaysia has returned again. The new PM belongs to the UNMO party which lost power in 2018 due to a financial issue of crores of rupees. This party remained in power till 2018 after getting independence from Britain in 1957.
According to media reports, Ismail’s appointment was necessary for Muhiuddin’s alliance to continue. The United Malays National Organization has again returned to power in the country after Ismail was appointed Prime Minister. The role of the sultan in Malaysia is quite formal, but he appoints the person he believes has majority support in parliament as PM.
