02 Sep Prime Minister Slayer? Mahathir’s Last Fight
He has been dubbed a ‘Prime Minister Slayer’. Former Malaysian Prime Minister, Dr Mahathir Mohamad is said to have brought down Malaysia’s first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman. He also played a pivotal role in deposing two Prime Ministers in a row—Malaysia’s 5th Prime Minister, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and his successor, Najib Razak. And now, Dr Mahathir is hell bent on bringing down the Perikatan Nasional government of Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin. Why is Dr Mahathir so obsessed with the desire to bring down the country’s Prime Ministers? Will he be able to regain the trust of Malaysian voters and become Prime Minister for the third time? And at 95, does he really have what it takes to wage another bruising political battle and come out on top?
