Najib Razak

Opponents of Malaysian PM join hands to oust him

Leaders from across Malaysia’s political spectrum and hundreds of their supporters led by former long-time Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad have rallied in Kuala Lumpur, calling for the removal of the current Prime Minister over a $700 corruption scandal.

Opponents of Najib Razak said on Sunday that they plan to petition the country’s Islamic royalty seeking the removal of scandal-plagued prime minister, who has been mired into graft allegations to the tune of $700. “(Najib’s) leadership undermines the very existence of our institutions,” said the 90-year-old Mahathir, who dominated Malaysia as prime minister for 22 years before retiring in 2003.

The highly unusual grouping of heavyweights from both from the ruling party and the opposition groups was formed in early March, when it issued a call to “save” Malaysia from disaster by removing Najib.
