Malaysia’s Mahathir says confident of victory, with strong poll lead

Malaysia’s veteran ex-leader Mahathir Mohamad, 92, said yesterday he was confident of victory as almost-complete results showed his opposition alliance with a strong lead in its fierce election battle against scandal-hit Prime Minister Najib Razak. A win for the opposition would amount to a political earthquake in Malaysia, which has been governed by the same ruling coalition for decades.

Walmart’s acquisition of homegrown online retailer Flipkart for USD 16 billion yesterday faced opposition from traders and an RSS affiliate, though industry body Assocham said it was a ‘salute’ to the success of Indian start-ups.

The row erupted three days before the May 12 polls with the Congress accusing the BJP of “stage managing” the recovery of the I-cards in a “fake midnight drama”

Looming US sanctions: India may not cut oil imports from Iran

US President Donald Trump’s move to reimpose sanctions on Iran after more than two years of reprieve given to the Persian Gulf country could keep global crude prices elevated in the short to medium term, analysts reckon.
