Malaysia’s opposition has filed a motion of no-confidence in the prime minister, Najib Razak, who is fighting for his political life amid corruption allegations and anger over a rise in the cost of living.
The scandal emerged in July when media reports said investigators had found that nearly $700m (£450m) from the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) state fund was transferred into the prime minister’s bank accounts.
Opposition MP Hee Loy Sian, who proposed the motion, said in a notice filed to parliament that “the people of Malaysia can no longer trust the prime minister”.
