Malaysia's Mahathir to steer the country forward

After his stunning win over the scandal-plagued coalition that has ruled for six decades, Malaysian ex-leader: Mahathir Mohamad says, "now the hard part begins".
In a huge political upset, Mahathir's opposition alliance ended the hold of the Barisan National Coalition, which has governed Malaysia uninterrupted, since the country's birth as an 'independent nation' in 1957.
Observers say, hope for lasting change in Malaysia may hinge on whether 'triumphant 92-year-old autocrat-turned-progressive: Mahathir Mohamad' has truly changed his ways, and whether he possesses the vigour and clout to heal national divisions.
