Mahathir Mohamad

Tun Mahathir Mohamad

The former prime minister might have walked away from his position as head of government more than a decade ago, but he is far from retired from politics. In 2014, he emerged as a thorn in the side of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak when declared that he was withdrawing support for the prime minister. How this will affect the Prime Minister is left to be seen but it is a fact that Tun M’s support counts.
