    Malaysia's Mahathir Mohamad will be sworn in as the world's oldest elected leader after his opposition alliance pulled off a stunning election win, ending six decades of rule by a coalition he once led.
    Malaysians celebrated the 92-year-old's unexpected victory over Prime Minister Najib Razak, whose popularity had plunged over rising living costs and in the wake of a multi-billion-dollar graft scandal at 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).

    Mahathir led the Southeast Asian nation for 22 years and his unexpected return to the prime ministership ends the previously unbroken rule of Barisan Nasional (BN), the coalition that had
    governed Malaysia since independence from Britain in 1957.

    "We are not seeking revenge ... what we want is to restore the rule of law," Mahathir said of Najib's scandal-plagued rule.

    Mahathir appeared jubilant and sprightly at a news conference claiming victory overnight, even joking with reporters, and will have an audience with Malaysia's king later on Thursday.

    The king will sign his letter of appointment as prime minister of Malaysia's constitutional monarchy during a ceremony at the royal palace in the capital, Kuala Lumpur.

    Najib is also expected to address the media. He has not spoken publicly since the results were declared but a member of his Cabinet said they would accept the will of the people.

    The stunning election outcome was expected to ruffle financial markets that were expecting a comfortable win for Najib and the BN.

    Najib sounded quite confident during the election, that's why this election results probably surprised many people.

    If i am not mistaken, umno itself has not conducted its party elections within its stipulated 3 years plus 18 months extension as stipukated in its constitution. In other words, its already a illegal party.

    This guy has a habit of backing the wrong horse.

    He made derogatory remarks about Trump before the US elections and Trump threatened to screw his arse after he became President. He was forgiven only after he promised to buy billions of dollars of Boeing (Made in USA) aircraft.

    The question is, what does Dr.M., have to live & be active & about at 92..despite the fact, we know that LKY exercise a lot but in the later part of life...struggle to " staying alive".

    This guy should've just be a Mathematics lecturer at NUS. Would've saved us all the embarrassment and the country wouldn't be in the dog house.
