Prominent Malaysian politician Anwar Ibrahim was taken to a hospital after complaining of back and shoulder pain.

The 70-year-old was being treated late on Saturday following a trip to Turkey, said Fahmi Fadzil, a spokesman for Mr. Ibrahim’s People’s Justice Party.

Mr. Ibrahim is expected to take over as Prime Minister at some point from former rival Mahathir Mohamad, who returned to power in a stunning election victory last month.

Mr. Ibrahim was convicted of sodomy in 2015 in a case he said was “politically motivated.” He was pardoned and released from custody following the election.
