The country waited four days for the announcement of the new Prime Minister and it finally came.
Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was yesterday appointed as Malaysia’s 10th Prime Minister.
With a new government come new hopes and aspirations from the people.
Sarawakians here share what they expect from the new prime minister.
NURUL ASMA MOHAMMAD, 35
I hope the new government can increase private and government jobs for the youth to further reduce unemployment in Malaysia. The focus should be on young people who are graduating from universities and colleges.
AZIELA NATASHA DOLHALEK,
I hope the new prime minister can improve Malaysia’s economy and focus on more development for Sarawakians in rural areas. I also hope the voice of Sarawakians will be heard at the federal level.

SABARIAH KIPLI, 36
Hopefully, our new Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will be a good and fair leader who will stabilise our country’s economy. I also hope the new government will protect the rights of women who work in the private sector in view of the current economic challenges.
