KUALA LUMPUR: Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin will return to work next week after successfully undergoing a surgery in Singapore to remove a growth on his pancreas recently.
In a statement by his press secretary today (Aug 11), the Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia president will be sworn in as Pagoh member of parliament on Aug 14.
He will also attend several meetings, the statement said.
“Muhyiddin will undergo chemotherapy for six months to prevent a relapse,” said his press secretary Hafiz Abdul Halim.
He added that Muhyiddin will carry out his duties as Home Minister in a limited capacity until the latter makes a full and complete recovery.
Muhyiddin has been on leave since July 12.
It was reported that the growth was detected at an early stage and that he was discharged from the Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore on Tuesday (Aug 7).
Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has been discharging the duties of Home Minister in Muhyiddin’s absence.
