Malaysia's Mahathir, 92, to be sworn in as prime minister
« on: May 10, 2018, 10:53:02 am »
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.

;D but dating actor/actress are tough, their time are all packed and hardly had time for dating  :P some of our local actresses like He ying ying and hazelle teo have real life boyfriend who aren't celebrities yet they can somehow managed to tolerate and keep their relationship intact. I remember when Felicia Chin debuted to entertaining industry by winning the Star Search 2003, her real life boyfriend showed up in her first drama scene. After a few months or so, they broke up If I am not wrong  :-\
