An­war on route from prison to PM

The Sunday Telegraph - - World news -

An­war Ibrahim has won a par­lia­men­tary by-election by a landslide, set­ting the stage for his re­turn to front-line Malaysian pol­i­tics and seal­ing the once-jailed op­po­si­tion fig­ure’s re­mark­able res­ur­rec­tion.

Win­ning the seat was a key re­quire­ment for An­war, 71, to suc­ceed Prime Min­is­ter Ma­hathir Mo­hamad, 93, who jailed his for­mer pro­tégé in 1998.
