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.

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”.
