Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the 93-year-old who returned as premier last year after a stunning election victory, said last week he wanted the race to return. "The interest in Grand Prix is still very big and we want to bring back the race here, because it has stimulated many Malaysians to go into the automotive industry," the Star newspaper quoted him as saying

BEIJING: Vote me out if you want, says Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in an apparent response to Tunku Mahkota Johor Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim's statement that the prime minister should be changed.

"A Prime Minister cannot be simply changed, only the people can change me with their votes," he told a press conference here before heading home Sunday (April 28).

Dr Mahathir was commenting on a video of Tunku Ismail as saying that the prime minister should be changed.

The 93-year-old premier had arrived here on Wednesday (April 24) for a five-day working visit to attend the 2nd Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF).

He is scheduled to return to Kuala Lumpur this evening.
