92-year-old Mahathir sworn in as Malaysian PM

Malaysia opposition wins election, Mahathir to return as PM

In fact, Mahathir once belonged to the party himself when he served as prime minster from 1981 to 2003, but he defected over corruption allegations surrounding the party and outgoing Prime Minister Najib Razak.

After his stunning win over the scandal-plagued coalition that has ruled for six decades, Malaysian ex-leader: Mahathir Mohamad says, "now the hard part begins".

The party writes that the result of the general elections is clear demonstration that Malaysians want to see a new era of democratic accountability from their government and the mandate that they have given to the Pakatan Harapan to form the new government is the latest Asian example that democracy and freedom are, indeed, universal concepts.

Questions have also surrounded the proper registration of Mahathir's coalition.

With Wednesday's election result, UMNO lost the driver's seat for the first time since Malaysia gained independence in 1957.

Najib, 64, has faced criticisms over the rising cost of living and the government's handling of the still-missing flight MH370.

"Singapore has enjoyed good relations and close cooperation with Malaysia for many years, with successive Malaysian leaders".

"Mahathir ruled the country with an iron fist - a tiger never changes his stripes - and Mahathir's style of rule will continue to be authoritarian", said 33-year-old businessman P. Punithan.
