前马来西亚总理辞去政党领导人职务 Former Malaysian Prime Minister Resigns Party Leadership

前马来西亚总理纳吉布星期六辞去了巫统主席以及政党联盟国民阵线领导人的职务。以巫统为首的国民阵线在星期三的大选中败北。巫统自从马来西亚1957年独立以来一直是执政党。

星期六早些时候,纳吉布及其妻子被禁止离开马来西亚。

马来西亚移民部星期六说,纳吉布夫妇刚被列入禁止出境的黑名单。

纳吉布可能面临有关大规模腐败的指控。

纳吉布在脸书上宣称要去国外度假,下星期返回。有传闻说,他试图逃避可能的起诉。纳吉布本人否认有任何不法行为。

美联社报道,一份被披露的行程显示,纳吉布夫妇计划星期六乘坐私人飞机前往雅加达。

Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak resigned Saturday as the president of leader of UNMO, the ethnic Malay party that has ruled Malaysia since its birth as an independent country in 1957, and as leader of the Barisan Nasional coalition that was ousted in Wednesday's general election.

Earlier Saturday, Najib and his wife were barred from leaving Malaysia.

Malaysia's immigration department said the couple had been "blacklisted" and could not travel.

Najib could face charges stemming from a massive corruption scandal.

His announcement on Facebook that he was going on vacation, but would return after a week, sparked rumors that he was attempting to escape possible prosecution. He denies any wrongdoing.

The Associated Press reports that a leaked flight manifesto showed Najib and his wife were scheduled to leave on a private jet Saturday for Jakarta.
