Malaysian Prime Minister – level 3

28-02-2020 15:00

On Monday, Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamed of Malaysia quit his job, and now the country does not have a head of government.

It is not certain who will become the next prime minister, so the Malaysian monarch asked Mahathir to stay as prime minister until a new one can take over.

Some people wonder if Mahathir is trying to make a new government without Anwar Ibrahim, who people thought was Mahathir’s successor. Mahathir and his party also removed themselves from a political group with Anwar’s party from 2018.

Difficult words: head (a leader), monarch (a king or a queen that helps lead a country), successor (the next person to get a job or an important role).
