The national palace disclosed this in a statement on Thursday, saying the swearing-in ceremony for Anwar will take place at 5:00 p.m. local time (0900 GMT) at the national palace
The palace said that Malaysia needs a stable government that will reinvigorate the economy and the country’s development.
It added that, Malaysia had been in a state of political stalemate following the results of an indecisive snap national polls on Nov.19, with no political coalition or party securing enough seats in the country’s lower house of parliament to form a government on its own.

However, Malaysian King Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah held several audiences with the heads of major political coalitions in a bid to break the stalemate and convened the conference of rulers to deliberate on the matter.
Following the meeting, Anwar, whose party coalition had secured 82 seats in the polls making his group the biggest, was named as the country’s new prime minister, allowing the formation of a new government.
