Malaysian Prime Minister – level 1

28-02-2020 15:00

On Monday, the prime minister of Malaysia quits his job. It is not clear who can be the next prime minister. The Malaysian monarch asks him to stay in his job. Then the government can appoint a new prime minister.

Some people think that the old prime minister is trying to change something. Maybe he is trying to make a new government without another official. Maybe this official can be the next prime minister. Maybe the old prime minister does not want this.

Difficult words: prime minister (the leader of a country that has several parts to its government), monarch (a king or a queen of a country), appoint (to formally give a job).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
