Former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad was hospitalized a few weeks after being discharged from the hospital after undergoing a medical examination.

According to the National Heart Institute, a 96-year-old woman was hospitalized for “selective medical procedure” on Friday, but details were revealed.

The former Prime Minister underwent a full medical examination in mid-December with several investigations at the same specialty heart hospital, and a week later a doctor discharged him.

Mahathir has had heart problems in the past, has had several heart attacks and has undergone bypass surgery.

He has been one of Malaysia’s most dominant politicians in decades and has served as Prime Minister twice for a total of 24 years.

He was a leader from 1981 to 2003 and then returned to power in 2018 at the age of 92 as the head of the Reformed coalition.

Mahathir’s reformist coalition government collapsed in 2020 due to the civil war.
