KUCHING: Dr Maszlee Malik has today announced that he will resign his post as Education Minister effective Jan 3.

Maszlee made the announcement following a press conference called at his office after several reports emerged that he would be resigning his post.

Following a meeting with Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, I realised that it was in the countrys best interest that I resign my post as education minister, he told the media.

He reiterated several times that his loyalty to the country and his party (Bersatu) was unfaltering, and his trust in Dr Mahathirs leadership.

Maszlee also highlighted several achievements of his ministry since Pakatan Harapan took power after the last general election.

Meanwhile, Dr Mahathir has also issued an official statement, saying that he had received and accepted Maszlee resignation.

I will announce his successor shortly, the statement read.

The Simpang Rengam MP has come under fire several times in the past after making some controversial moves, the latest of which is the introduction of Jawi calligraphy in vernacular schools.
