Tens Of Thousands Protest Against Malaysian Prime Minister


More than 50,000 people are protesting in Malaysia’s capital to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Najib Razak, who has weathered public outrage over a multi-million dollar payment made to a bank account under his name.

The protesters gathered at five designated areas in the Malaysian capital on Saturday ahead of a planned march towards the city’s Independence Square, which has already been blocked for national celebrations on Monday.

Kuala Lumpur authorities banned the two-day rally organised by the pro-democracy group, Bersih, setting the stage for a possible showdown with security forces.

The activist group has also called for rallies in the cities of Kota Kinabalu and Kuching on the Malaysian side of Borneo.
