Mahathir ready to step down

Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia's Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohamad, reminding his United Malays National Organisation that he was now 70, said he would "soon" hand over power to his deputy, Anwar Ibrahim, 47, indicating for the first time that he is ready to step down after 14 years in office. Mr Anwar has repeatedly denied that there is a power struggle in the party, although his supporters have openly said that it is time for Dr Mahathir to step down AP
