Malaysia's prime minister has no plans to resign, his spokesman said on Sunday, despite leading the ruling coalition to its worst-ever election setback at general elections on Saturday.

"There are no plans to resign," spokesman Kamal Khalid said. "He still has plans to proceed to the palace tomorrow morning (Monday) to take the oath of office."

Abdullah's multi-racial National Front coalition won just a simple majority in parliament, but lost a third of its federal seats and five states to the opposition.
