Mahathir Mohamad: Malaysian politician
Tun Mahathir bin Mohamad, known informally as Dr. M, is a Malaysian physician and politician who is the current Prime Minister of Malaysia. He is also the author of numerous books, the first of which was The Malay Dilemma. He previously served as prime minister from 1981 until his retirement in 2003, by which time he was the world's longest-serving elected leader. He is the chairman of the Pakatan Harapan coalition, as well as a member of the Parliament of Malaysia for the Langkawi constituency in the state of Kedah. Mahathir's political career has spanned more than 70 years starting with his participation during the Malayan Union in protests against non-Malays gaining Malaysian citizenship; he formed his own party, the Malaysian United Indigenous Party (PPBM), in 2016.
