Malaysian PM defies calls to quit


Malaysian Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin defied mounting pressure to quit on Wednesday, saying he retained majority support among lawmakers and that he would prove it when the Southeast Asian nation’s parliament reconvenes next month.

Speaking in a televised address, Yassin said King Al-Sultan Abdullah agreed that he should remain in power pending the confidence vote, even though some members of his coalition have withdrawn support. —Agencies
