VEGOILS-Palm oil slumped 4% on Tuesday amid Malaysia political crisis

SINGAPORE, Feb 26 (Reuters) - Malaysian palm oil futures slid to a four-month low on Tuesday, pressured by falling exports and a delay in an economic stimulus package amid a political crisis. The benchmark palm oil contract for May delivery on the Bursa Malaysia Derivatives Exchange closed down 4.1% at 2,438 ringgit ($575.68), its lowest since Oct. 29. On Monday, Malaysia's Mahathir Mohamad unexpectedly quit as prime minister but was immediately reappointed as interim premier until a new government is formed, sending local currency, bond and stock markets lower.
