Description

He's describing it as a new dawn for Malaysia.
Anwar Ibrahim has walked free from prison thanks to a royal pardon and the help of the man who sacked and jailed him 20 years ago.
Mahathir Mohamad was re-elected last week as the world's oldest prime minister.
And the 92-year-old is choosing Anwar - his former deputy before they became political enemies - as his replacement in the next couple of years.
The royal pardon allows him to return to politics after serving three of a five-year prison sentence for sodomy and corruption, charges he says were a political smear.
So why are they cooperating now? And what does it all mean for Malaysia?
