    Dr M in shocking GE15 defeat

    CNA – The shocking defeat of former Malaysian prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad at Saturday’s general election risks overshadowing his legacy in transforming the nation’s economy, observers said.

    They pointed to the 97-year-old’s efforts in taking Malaysia’s economy from being heavily dependent on agriculture to a more advance one involving industrialisation and manufacturing. But the experts also acknowledged his role as a divisive figure, having implemented race-based policies and consolidated power in the former ruling party’s leadership – which has had ripples on the state of corruption in Malaysia today.
