Is the world’s oldest prime minister the answer in Malaysia?

Latest news

    Voters in Malaysia have thrown the ruling coalition from power for the first time since independence 61 years ago.

    The architect of the opposition’s upset win is the veteran politician who made the ruling alliance a formidable force during his 22 years as prime minister.

    Mahathir Mohamad returned to active politics two years ago in an unusual role for him. As an opposition leader, he accused Prime Minister Najib Razak of stealing millions of dollars in government funds.

    And he channelled the anger of millions of Malaysians about the rising cost of living and corruption into his latest electoral success – two months before his 93rd birthday.
