Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim today commenced his duty at Perdana Putra in Putrajaya.

He arrived at the main block of the Perdana Putra building, which houses the Prime Minister's Office, at about 9.55am. 

He was received by Chief Secretary to the Government Mohd  Zuki Ali.

Also present were Public Service Department director-general Mohd Shafiq Abdullah, Attorney-General Idrus Harun, Inspector-General of Police Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani and army chief Zamrose Mohd Zain.

Anwar then clocked in at his office on the fifth floor of the building.

The Tambun MP later joined a prayer led by the Prime Minister’s Department integrity officer Muhd Redza Ahmad before signing a welcome book.

Earlier, Anwar waved to reporters who had camped outside the compound of Perdana Putra waiting for his arrival.

He also mingled with the civil servants waiting for his arrival at the lobby of Perdana Putra.

Anwar, 75, took his oath as the 10th prime minister before Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah yesterday.

At his maiden press conference as prime minister, Anwar stressed that a unity government would be formed with the participation of several parties to ensure the stability of the country and economy as well as to uphold the spirit of the Federal Constitution.

He said the three largest components of the unity government are Pakatan Harapan, Barisan Nasional and Gabungan Parti Sarawak.
