Malaysia’s Palace Asks Political Blocs to Submit PM Candidates by Tuesday

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Malaysia’s palace extended a deadline for political parties to submit their prime minister candidates to Tuesday at 2 p.m. (0600 GMT), it said in a statement.

Competing coalitions were initially asked to submit candidates by 2 p.m. on Monday, after a general election resulted in a hung parliament.
