Anwar Ibrahim, a veteran statesman from Malaysia, was named the nation’s next prime minister. Following a lengthy electoral standoff, according to the statement from the Southeast Asian country’s palace.

The former deputy prime minister, who has led the opposition for two decades despite jail sentences and political assassinations, has been waiting for Anwar’s appointment for more than 20 years.

Prior to his imprisonment for corruption and sodomy in the 1990s, Anwar served as the former prime leader Mahathir Mohamad’s deputy. This month, Malaysia will conduct its fifteenth general election.

Since Anwar’s Pakatan won the 2018 elections, breaking the 60-year control of Malaysia’s major coalition Barisan, the country has seen political unrest.
