Nurul Izzah: Anwar out of jail Tuesday

Malaysians celebrate the return of Mahathir and hope for a brighter future

It was a remarkable comeback for Mahathir, who was premier for 22 years until his retirement in 2003 and is now the world's oldest leader at 92.

Mr. Ibrahim was heir-apparent to the premiership until Mr. Mohamad sacked him in 1998.

This means a full pardon.

When asked if Anwar would be getting a full pardon, she answered "Yes".

Anwar, who is serving a five-year prison sentence, is scheduled to be released on June 8.

Anwar was released from jail in 2004 and became a powerful figure in the opposition, running against Najib in the 2013 election.

She said: "He followed the event of the prime minister being sworn in and the victory. even though he was a spectator this time not within the ring, so to speak, but he has contributed".

He explained that Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and Nurul Izzah Anwar's visit to the Cheras Rehabilitation Hospital on Friday afternoon - where Anwar is being held - was just a normal family visit.

Google's Plan To Make Tech Less Addictive
The first developer preview was released previously last month but now we have beta version of Android P. And when the kids forget to ask nicely, the Assistant will kindly encourage them to say "pretty please".

"Mahathir has proven his tenacity, accepted past limitations, apologised and sacrificed his time and energy to raise the dignity of the people and the country", Anwar said.

"In the case of foreign affairs, we want to maintain good relations with all countries regardless of their policies", he said.

Anwar and Mahathir, former allies and then implacable foes, joined hands to contest this week's election and oust the administration of Najib Razak.

It is unclear how long Mahathir will remain prime minister after Anwar's release.

Mahathir has said he would not go on a witch hunt but that Najib will be brought to court if there was evidence of wrongdoing.

Malaysian markets were closed and will reopen on Monday, but overseas investors were nervous about Mr Najib's ouster after a decade in office.

Mahathir said his government would look into measures to stabilise the ringgit, and talk to departments on what could be done.

But he was also credited for transforming his southeast Asian country from a sleepy backwater into a modern industrialised nation.
