Malaysian police visited former Prime Minister Najib Razak's house late Wednesday, reportedly searching for documents as part of a renewed probe into a massive corruption scandal involving a state investment fund that is being investigated overseas.
Anwar, 70, pledged to support top-to-bottom reform of the country after the corruption-plagued ruling coalition that had governed for six decades was dramatically voted out last week.
Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is now a free man. They have demanded a change,"he said in an inaugural press conference at his residence in Segambut".
A popular Islamic student leader, Anwar joined the ruling Malay party in 1982, a year after Mahathir became prime minister. "There will be no more special powers given, excepting as is given to ministers or deputy ministers or deputy prime ministers".
Reformist icon Anwar Ibrahim celebrated a "new dawn" for Malaysia after he was given a royal pardon and freed from custody on Wednesday, transforming a political prisoner into a Prime Minister-in-waiting following his alliance's stunning election victory.
His release is a moment to celebrate for a group which labored in opposition for decades and faced constant pressure from those in office - he's been jailed twice on sodomy convictions and also for abuse of power.

Accompanied by his wife Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, a former housewife who threw herself into Malaysia's political struggle after her husband was jailed in the late 1990s, their convoy headed off through Kuala Lumpur.
Malaysia's 92-year-old Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said Tuesday he will run the country for one to two years before stepping down, and that defeated leader Najib Razak could be charged soon in a massive corruption scandal.
Anwar was sentenced to five years in prison in February 2015 after the Federal Court retained a conviction for sodomy. He added that it's an additional win that Anwar has been released.
Meanwhile, there are signs of early tensions between Mahathir and Anwar's PKR, which won the most seats in the four-party alliance that ended Basiran National's entrenched rule.
He went from there to Sultan Muhammad V. The palace said in a statement: "The king, with the advice of the pardons board, has allowed a full pardon and given an immediate release". "I can not complain very much", he said. He quickly rose up the ranks, becoming finance minister in 1991 and deputy prime minister two years later.
He maintains his innocence, and says on both occasions Mahathir and Najib used trumped up charges against him to keep him out of politics. The two had a falling out over the handling of the 1997 Asian financial crisis, resulting in Anwar being sacked as deputy prime minister.
