He was PM for 22 years and never did i felt pressured or poor from the government, he even manage to recover malaysia from the economy downfall 1998. But during najib ruling i felt seriously pressured by the government and economy really dropped.

This is a bit misleading. The voters voted the opposition front. They then picked Mahathir. The voters did not vote for Mahathir. It's the British system, unlike US where voters pick the president directly.

The point is that US voters actually vote for their leader. They don't vote for a party and then have the party nominate the leader. So they can have a Republican Senate and Republican House but a Democratic president. That can never happen in Malaysia.

in the US is same as well they have Republicans and Demorats, both with their own agendas. But yes the party matters more in Malaysia's case. PM isn't as powerful as a POTUS.

I've voted for him before when he was in BN. Those days every Malaysia get a piece of the economy. I wouldnt say he is the best n totally no corruption in the country but at least Malaysia is making progress and everyone is happy. Now I vote for him again to make Malaysia great again. To help the people who are starving cause BN don't help the people. We the people believe in him.

Since i was a kid I heard so much great new and compliments about him. All generations truly respect him for what he had done up until now. He made Malaysia known to the world when he was the PM. If it’s not for him, we won’t be living in this developing country comfortably. We made the best choice and he will remain as one of the greatest man in Malaysia history.

The Dawn Raid, Twin Towers, the 1990s economy crisis that hit Asia yet he was adamant not to succumb to IMF, the establishment of Proton, the Look to the East era, the I-dont-give-a-eff attitude that our Tun Mahathir has. Compared that to our last PM.

Because he was the 4th PM before and has led Malaysia to success? No wonder people want him back.

Mahathir Mohamad was a pugnacious would be dictator when he was the leader previously but he is now a breath of fresh air compared to his replacement, who was the most corrupt and venal man in Asia.

What most people tend to forget is that the youth of today, who voted for Tun Mahathir, are the ones who grew up under his watch. Whether they like him or not, he was the force who shaped their lives. They know that if he wants something, then he will find a way; you just have to choose whether you're with or against him. Malaysia would not be as it is today without Tun Dr Mahathir.

:) Change may be good for Malaysia. It's good. But honestly my mom kinda still hold some grudge against Mahatir for the shit he did when he was the previous PM, he wasn't exactly very fair or care about economics sometimes. But hey we all recognize that at least Mahatir made some great stuff happened when he was the old PM. Najib is all the way down man. So ya when I heard Mahatir talking instead about doubling the trains speed and building infrastructure. I'm actually happy, cause that matters more then hating and politicking isnt it. Like pls improve the trains and build new tracks PLS!

tun dr. mahathir may have been an authoritarian back in the day but i'm thankful for his reintroduction into the world of malaysian politics. we would have never been able to topple the previous ruling party without such an obvious swerve of support for the current governing coalition. it's understandable that people are confused that we're calling him authoritative but at the same time showing him support, but during his campaign in the past year he's owned up to his mistakes and his sincerity to lead the country to a path of change and improvement was obvious. he's 92, soon to be 93 in a couple of months, and there is no need for him to hustle as hard as he does at this day and age. he truly wanted, and wants, to fix the mistakes of his successors and to make up for his policies when he served as the 4th prime minister. i grew up looking up to him without knowing much about how he played his politics back in the day, but now that i'm educating myself i can see that he was a flawed pm but he's malaysia's best chance at ousting corruption now. it's also amazing that we're not far from 2020 so he can see to the end of wawasan 2020 that he started. he's only been working as our 7th pm for less than a week but i hope he serves the people well during this short time. may tun live long and happy.

The moment my dad told me that Tun M will be the new prime minister, i just straight away woke up and almost got tears bcs this is the beginning for the new Malaysia. Yesss, it will take times to clean up all the mess that najib razak have been doing for the past 10 years. Its not easy. Give Tun M time to clean all the mess. We’ve waiting for 5 years and now we got what we wants. Just put the trust to Tun M

That's what we're looking forward to now. We need that change so much since we are in deep shit right now. Cost of living is very high and jobs are scarce. The RM is recovering slowly. The country is in big debt because of the now former government.

He saved Malaysia from being ruined and emptied out. He is the only man who has the power to command respect across a broad spectrum of race and parties with different goals to come together for the sole purpose of saving the country. A fantastic man with worldly experience and who cares for his people. Malaysia is lucky to have a PM like Dr. Mahathir once again! Please treasure every minute he has with you!
