MALAYSIAN OPPOSITION RALLIES AGAINST ELECTION LOSS

Muslim World

At least 50,000 Malaysian opposition supporters rallied at a stadium on 8 May to protest what they say are fraud-marred election results that enabled the long-ruling coalition to cling to power.
Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim’s three-party alliance believes the National Front coalition used illegal voters, bogus ballots and other irregularities in 5 May national polls to extend its 56 years of rule. Prime Minister Najib Razak has rejected the accusations and maintained that the elections were free and fair. Opposition supporters filled a sports stadium for a rally marking the start of a campaign to demand more electoral transparency. The National Front won 133 of Parliament’s 222 seats, but Anwar’s alliance plans to mount a legal challenge of the results of at least 30 seats. The National Front lost the popular vote, polling 5.24 million votes to the opposition’s 5.62 million.
