KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 24 — Malaysia’s 10th Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today announced that the Dewan Rakyat will sit on December 19, with a vote of confidence being the first order of business.

Anwar was speaking at his first press conference as prime minister, after taking a phone call from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

“I want to explain here that we have already fixed the Parliament session on December 19, and the first motion, apart from me taking my oath, is the motion from the government for a vote of confidence.

“So, for me, there is no reason to worry about the legitimacy that is there,” he added.
