The BBC’s Zeinab Badawi poses some tough questions to Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad about his decision to come out of retirement and work with Anwar Ibrahim, oppressive laws, affirmative action and the brain drain, and corruption during his previous tenure.
He was also asked about the new government’s decision to cancel several large deals with China, allegations of anti-Semitism levelled against him and whether he would hand over power to Anwar after two years.
The following is another interview with Mahathir, this time by TRT, a Turkish international news channel:
The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.
