  • Ex-Thailand PM Thaksin congratulates Dr M on Pakatan victory

Najib denied any wrongdoing and Mohamed Apandi cleared Najib in 2016, saying the money was a donation from Saudi Arabia's royal family and most of it returned. The fund was set up by Najib in 2009 to promote economic development but it accumulated billions in debts and is under investigations in the United States and other countries.

Anwar was Mahathir's heir-apparent until the premier sacked him in 1998 over political differences, and he was subsequently jailed on charges of sodomy and abuse of power. Anwar led the opposition in the previous election, in 2013, in which his side won the popular vote but could not win enough parliamentary seats to topple BN. "We have to do what is permitted by the laws of this country", Mahathir said.

I pray that after this divisive period, the country will unite.

In his first statement after victory, Mahathir told his supporters that his objective was to re-establish the rule of law after the corruption scandals that characterised Najib's term.

Two sources told Reuters on Friday that Mahathir will appoint a finance ministry adviser to oversee the recovery of billions of dollars allegedly stolen from 1MDB.

The scandal has dogged Najib since 2015 after reports that about $700 million in misappropriated 1MDB funds flowed into his personal account.

"There are many things that we have to look through", she said.

On the rumoured meeting, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas said last week: "I do not know where this came from". The basis is obviously good because if we win against Brighton we are in the Champions League.

In a statement, Anwar thanked "the people of Malaysia for their courage in making a change which is a victory for the people".

Anwar was expected to be released in June, after serving the bulk of the sentence. Dr Mahathir said initial policies would focus on fulfilling promises made in the alliance's manifesto, including the abolition of a goods and services tax (GST).

Yet the feeling is that for many Malaysians, Mahathir is the lesser of two evils, their votes a protest against Najib more than a ringing endorsement of the former national leader's own candidacy.

In his speech, Mr Najib, 64, said he accepted the "verdict of the people".

The National Front "will honour the principle of democracy in the parliament", he said. Trump said he would try.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has felicitated to Prime Minister of Malaysia Dr. Mahathir Mohamad on his success in general elections. However, he has also criticized a $13 billion One Belt, One Road rail project called the East Coast Rail Link as wasteful and unnecessary and has anxious that Malaysia is taking on too much debt to cover its side of large infrastructure projects.

Optimists say that Mahathir's age and convoluted history are evidence he truly cares about the future of the country and can be trusted to rise above petty corruption during his presumably brief return to office.
