KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has accepted the resignation of the central bank governor, he said yesterday, the latest in a string of departures as the 92-year-old leader purges top officials seen as close to the previous government. Mahathir told a news conference after a Cabinet meeting that the central bank’s governor, Muhammad Ibrahim, had offered his resignation. “We have not decided on his successor because we need to have the approval of the Agong before we can announce,” Mahathir said, referring to the king, adding the new government would meet him as soon as possible to discuss a successor.
