Malaysian Supreme Head Mizan Zainal Abidin has consented to the appointment of Najib Tun Razak as the sixth prime minister of Malaysia, Chief Secretary to the Government Mohd Sidek Hassan said in a statement on Thursday.

Najib would be presented his letter of appointment as prime minister and would take his oath of office, loyalty and confidentiality before Supreme Head at Istana Negara (National Palace) at 10 a.m. local time Friday, the statement said.

Current Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is expected to hand over his duties to Najib at the Prime Minister's office in Putrajaya, the administrative center of Malaysia at 4 p.m. Friday.

On Thursday morning, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had an audience with Supreme Head to hand over the letter relinquishing the post of prime minister in accordance with the agreed transition of power from him to Najib.

Najib, who succeeded Badawi as the president of the United Malays National Organization (UMNO), the leading ruling party in the country, at the party general assembly last week, also had an audience with Supreme Head at Istana Negara on Thursday.

Badawi was appointed the fifth prime minister of Malaysia on Oct. 30, 2003, having succeeded Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
