Sacked Malaysia DPM to form new party with Dr Mahathir

KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia's former deputy prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin said in a Facebook post that he would soon apply to the Registry of Societies for the establishment of a new political party.

Muhyiddin visited former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad last night to discuss details about the new party.

"Let's pray that the application will be approved, and we are going to bring our best to the nation and the people." Muhyiddin wrote. He was outspoken about the 1MDB issue and later sacked from the deputy prime minister post last year.
