Mahathir stable after hospitalized 3rd time in a week

Date:

PUTRA JAYA: Former Malaysian prime minister Mahathir Muhammad is in stable condition after being admitted to a specialist heart hospital for the third time in just weeks, according to his daughter.

The 96-year-old has been receiving treatment at the National Heart Institute in Kuala Lumpur for the past two days, Marina Mahathir said.

Media descended on the hospital on Saturday as news spread that Mahathir had been admitted again, and current Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob also paid him a visit.

In a statement, his daughter said he was receiving follow-up treatment after a procedure at the same facility about two weeks ago.

“His condition is now stable and he has been responding well to treatment,” she said.

His family “requests that people pray for him to make a full recovery”, she added.

Mahathir also spent several days at the hospital in December for a check-up.

He has had numerous heart problems over the years, suffering several heart attacks and undergoing bypass surgery.

Mahathir is one of
Malaysia’s most dominant political figures, having served twice as prime minister for a total of 24 years.

He was the leader from 1981 to 2003, then returned to power in 2018 at the age of 92, heading a reformist coalition in the wake of the vast 1MDB corruption scandal.

But that administration collapsed in 2020 due to infighting.
