TRIBUNBATAM.id - President Joko Widodo congratulated Ismail Sabri Yaakob who was officially sworn in as the new prime minister of Malaysia on Saturday, (8/21/2021).

Through his tweets on Twitter, Jokowi said the Indonesian government under his leadership was ready to strengthen cooperation with Malaysia

"Warmest congratulations Your Excellency Ismail Sabri Yaakob @IsmailSabri60 on your appointment as the 9th Prime Minister of Malaysia

Ready to continue working together to strengthen Indonesia-Malaysia bilateral relations," Jokowi tweeted. 

The King of Malaysia, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah, appointed Ismail Sabri Yaakob as a Prime Minister of Malaysia to replace the resigned Muhyiddin Yassin

Ismail's oath-taking and inauguration were held at the Royal Palace of Malaysia today, Saturday, (8/21/2021). 

He took the oath of office in front of the king and other coalition leaders, including former prime minister Najib Razak, who is still entangled in the mega-corruption scandal of state investment agency 1MBD. 

Ismail was appointed by Sultan Abdullah as prime minister after gaining the support of 114 votes from 222 members of the Malaysian parliament. 

The decision was taken by Sultan Abdullah after Malaysian politics continued to fluctuate in recent weeks, following the move by the country's largest political party, UMNO, to withdraw support from the Muhyiddin government.

UMNO argued that Muhyiddin had failed in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic in Malaysia.

UMNO's move triggered a political upheaval in the government that caused all members of Muhyiddin's cabinet to resign on August 16. 

Muhyiddin finally said he was resigning from the position of PM after serving for 17 months. (*)
