Fierce but Frail, Malaysia’s Mahathir, 92, Aims to Topple Protégé

Sunday 18:11 GMT

Mahathir Mohamad, who led Malaysia for decades with dagger-sharp rhetoric and increasingly autocratic ways, is 92 and in frail health.

To do it, Mr. Mahathir, already one of the world’s most durable political survivors, has engaged in yet another act of reinvention. This time, he is allying himself with opposition figures he once repressed in the name of beating his own former protégé, Najib Razak, whom he helped make prime minister in 2009.
