Last updated May 9, Share Salehuddin Omar 1. Dr Mahathir believes his 22 years in office as PM, his standing amongst Malaysians, especially amongst the Malays, was strong and this gives him the right to dictate and judge his successors to ensure Malaysia continues to prosper.
He was actually born on 10 July; his biographer Barry Wain explains that 20 December was an "arbitrary" date. Both parents had been married previously; Mahathir had six half-siblings and two full-siblings.
Discipline imposed by his father motivated him to study, and he showed little interest in sports. He started out his primary education at the Seberang Perak Malay Boys School in and studied there for two years. After he graduated, Mahathir worked as a doctor in government service before marrying in He returned to Alor Setar the following year to set up his own practice.
The success of his practice, as the only Malay doctor in the town, allowed him to build a large house, invest in various businesses and, pointedly, employ a chauffeur to drive his Pontiac Catalina.
Early political career[ edit ] Mahathir had been politically active since the end of the Japanese occupation of Malaya, when he joined protests against the granting of citizenship to non-Malays under the short-lived Malayan Union.
While at college he contributed to The Straits Times under the pseudonym "C. Det", and a student journal, in which he fiercely promoted Malay rights, such as restoring Malay as an official language. The relationship between the two Kedahans had been strained since Mahathir had criticised Abdul Rahman's agreement to the retention of British and Commonwealth forces in Malaya after independence.
For Mahathir this was a significant enough slight to delay his entry into national politics in protest. The delay did not last for long. In the following general election inhe was elected as the federal parliamentarian for the Alor Setar-based seat of Kota Setar Selatan.
Singapore was expelled from Malaysia in Mahathir's first full year in parliament.
The previous year, Mahathir had predicted the outbreak of racial hostility. Now, outside parliament, he openly criticised the government, sending a letter to Abdul Rahman in which the prime minister was criticised for failing to uphold Malay interests.

Political. He said, each leader had his own style of leadership which is suitable with their era and it is unfair for Dr Mahathir to accuse Najib's current leadership in Umno in such manner. "Dr Mahathir’s era is different from the late Tunku Abdul Rahman’s era, Tun Abdullah .
The letter, which soon became public, called for Abdul Rahman's resignation. The book argued that a balance had to be achieved between enough government support for Malays so that their economic interests would not be dominated by the Chinese, and exposing Malays to sufficient competition to ensure that over time, Malays would lose what Mahathir saw as the characteristics of avoiding hard work and failing to "appreciate the real value of money and property".
The ban was only lifted after Mahathir became prime minister in ; he thus served as a minister and deputy prime minister while being the author of a banned book.
Milne and Diane K. Mauzy argue that Mahathir's relentless attacks were the principal cause of Abdul Rahman's downfall and subsequent resignation as prime minister in Razak encouraged Mahathir back into the party, and had him appointed as a Senator in He also returned to the House of Representativeswinning the Kedah-based seat of Kubang Pasu unopposed in the election.
The contest was considered to be a battle for the succession of the party's leadership, with both Razak and his deputy, Hussein Onn, in declining health. Each of Razak's preferred candidates was elected: When Razak died the following year, Hussein as his successor was forced to choose between the three men to be deputy prime minister; he also considered the ambitious minister Ghazali Shafie.
Each of Mahathir's rivals had significant political liabilities: Ghazali, having been defeated by the others for a vice-presidency, lacked the support of UMNO members; Ghafar had no higher education and was not fluent in English; and Razaleigh was young, inexperienced and, critically, unmarried.
But Hussein's decision was not easy. Hussein and Mahathir were not close allies, and Hussein knew the choice of Mahathir would displease Abdul Rahman, still alive and revered as the father of Malaysia's independence.
After six weeks of indecision Mahathir was, much to his surprise, appointed as Hussein's deputy. The appointment meant that Mahathir was the anointed successor to the prime ministership.
Hussein was a cautious leader who rejected many of Mahathir's bold policy proposals. While the relationship between Hussein and Mahathir was distant, Ghazali and Razaleigh became Hussein's closest advisers, often bypassing the more senior Mahathir when accessing Hussein.Tun Abdul Razak’s Leadership Style Tun Abdul Razak succeeded Tunku Abdul Rahman as the second Prime Minister of Malaysia, leading and guiding the country from to (6 years).
