About Mr. Mahathir coming to power
Mr. Modi is among the first world leaders to meet Mr. Mahathir after he became the world’s oldest elected leader when his opposition alliance registered a stunning victory over the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition, which had ruled Malaysia since 1957. Dr. Mahathir was sworn in as Malaysia’s Prime Minister on May 10.
