Malaysia’s veteran opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim was sworn in as prime minister before the king in Kuala Lumpur Thursday, ending a five-day political impasse after unprecedented inconclusive polls.
"I, Anwar Ibrahim, after being appointed to hold the position of Prime Minister, solemnly swear that I will honestly fulfil that duty with all my efforts, and that I will devote my true loyalty to Malaysia," the 75-year-old said while dressed in traditional Malaysian clothing.
