Well, it is kind of a closure for Malaysia that the King had decided that Bersatu’s Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has the highest support and thus will be the next Prime Minister.

To many of the younger generations like me, Dr M was THE best Prime Minister todate (we did not “experience” Malaysia under the previous Prime Ministers although some would say Tunku Abdul Rahman’s time was still best of all).… [Click to read the rest] “Quote of the Day: Statesman”
