But people can still call him Muhyiddin Yassin, if they want to.
Official government documents and letters will now use the official name of Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, which is Mahiaddin Md Yasin.
It’s reported that the the Prime Minister’s Office has issued a memo on 3 June to use his actual name which will be in effect immediately.
In the memo, officials are notified to either use Mahiaddin Bin Md Yasin or Tan Sri Datuk Haji Mahiaddin Bin Haji Md Yasin.
Shah Alam court rules out order due to name change
This comes a few months after Shah Alam court reversed a preventive detention order signed by the Prime Minister during his time as the Home Minister because he signed the order using the name “Muhyiddin Yassin”.
They ruled that any executive decision or action taken by the Prime Minister or Minister must use the name as stated in their MyKad and not a “glamour name”.
It’s still Muhyiddin for everybody else
Despite the name change, the public and media can still call Malaysia’s Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, according to his aide.
FMT quoted his aide who said that his official name is only used for official documents after the memo went viral online.
