Trump congratulates Dr M on his swearing in as Prime Minister

Malaysia elections: PM-in-waiting Anwar watches Mahathir swearing in from hospital

Mahathir has said the new government would seek the release and full pardon of Anwar Ibrahim, an opposition icon imprisoned on sodomy charges.

Malaysia's defeated leader Najib Razak yesterday said he accepted the will of the people after the coalition that has led the country for six decades suffered a shock loss to veteran ex-leader Mahathir Mohamad, 92.

Mahathir, who was prime minister from 1981 to 2003 and defected to the opposition in order to stand as their candidate, repeatedly called Najib a "thief" on the campaign trail and pledged to reopen an investigation into state fund 1MDB. But the two agreed to set aside their hard past in a bid to unseat premier Najib Razak from power.

Mahathir Mohamad (R) addresses the media next to Wan Azizah, Anwar Ibrahim's wife.

"He should be released immediately when he is pardoned". Malaysia's king has reportedly agreed to pardon the jailed politician.

The opposition's victory was the result of an alliance of former rivals, including Mr. Mahathir and people who have opposed him and his former party.

The southeast Asian nation's political landscape has been shaped for almost two decades by a feud between Anwar and Mahathir, whose decision to sack Anwar as his deputy sparked an opposition movement, Reformasi, or Reform, in 1998.

Mr Mahathir said his four-party alliance will hold a meeting on Saturday and name just 10 ministers.

It remains unclear when the pardon will be issued, and Mr Mahathir warned his supporters that the process of Anwar becoming an MP again so he can take on the leadership "might take a long time".

The scandal has dogged Najib since 2015 after reports that about $700 million in misappropriated 1MDB funds flowed into his personal account.

At a press conference after being sworn in, Mahathir said the government's main focus would be on the economy.

As Malaysia's longest-serving PM, Dr Mahathir had a striking regional and global presence.

He re-entered politics after being angered by a corruption scandal in which associates of Mr Najib were said to have taken £3.7billion from a state fund.

In his message of felicitation, the prime minister said, "It gives me enormous pleasure to extend to your excellency and the brotherly people of Malaysia our deepest felicitations on the success of Pakatan Harapan in the 14th General Election".

Both Najib and 1MDB deny any wrongdoing.
