Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad Speaks of the ‘New Malaysia’ – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad Speaks ……

At 93, he is the oldest head of state in the world, the patron saint of comebacks. What is remarkable is that Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad was the Prime Minister of Malaysia from 1981 to 2003. He retired to make way for his successor Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. In May 2018, the coalition headed by Mahathir won 122 out of 222 seats. This narrow victory ensured that he became Prime Minister for the second time in Malaysia’s history.

Mahathir is widely credited as the architect of modernization in his country. His long tenure in government brought the stability needed for the economic transformation.
