"The PM would continue to govern in the interests of the country"

Does it also work by using "manage" instead of "govern" ?


see your post, Thanks!;)

    Thank you, bibliolept

    Is there any other word can be comparable to "govern" for this context?

    Within that sentence's context, you could say "lead." "Rule" would sound odd outside of a monarchy; because we are talking about politics/government at a national level, "command" and "preside" also sound out of place.
