Add another feather to Tun Dr Mahathir's cap, please!

It's been a whirlwind week for current Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. 

First, he led Pakatan Harapan to victory in a frantic 14th General Elections, ending Barisan Nasional's 60-year rule over the country. A day later, he was sworn in as Malaysia's seventh Prime Minister.

Now, he is officially a Guiness World Record Holder.

The annual reference book said in an article published last Friday that Dr M is now the world's oldest current Prime Minister.

Dr M will turn 93 on 10 July.

"His election victory means he's older than the two previous serving politicians who Guinness World Records has recognised as holding the title," they said in the article.
In case you were wondering, the previous record holders were Saudi Arabian rulers King Fahd bin Abdul Aziz (who passed away at the age of 84) and King Abdullah Ibn Abdul Aziz (he was 90 when he passed away).
