PETALING JAYA: Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin will take a one-month break from helming the Home Ministry after a successful operation to extract a pancreatic tumour, which was detected at an early stage.

“Alhamdulilah, the operation was successful and he is in a stable condition.

“He will take a break from today (July 12) onwards and is expected to return to duty within a month,” said Home Ministry press secretary Hafiz Abdul Halim in a statement.

During his absence, Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will take over Muhyiddin’s responsibilities as Home Minister.
