However, on his official his birth certificate it says he was born on December 20, 1925.
Well this determined PM of ours started the day brightly by walking into parliment at 8.10am sharp for the cabinet meeting.
In parliament today, he had to discuss various serious issues like the bid to lower the voting age, and the sales of Malaysian Airlines.
