Opposition open to Mahathir's proposal to topple Najib

HONG KONG/KUALA LUMPUR -- The head of Malaysia's largest opposition party said Friday he is prepared to sit down with former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad -- the man who once jailed him -- to explore options for squeezing the country's current leader Najib Razak from power.

     "We should be willing to discuss because of the dire straits that are happening in Malaysia now," said the chief minister of Penang, Lim Guan Eng, who is also secretary general of the Democratic Action Party. Malaysia, he said, was embroiled in a political and economic crisis.
