Malaysia's 13th General Election (GE13)

Since its independence in 1957, Malaysia has experienced more than 55 years of continuous rule by Barisan Nasional (BN), a coalition of three major political parties lead by UMNO (United Malays National Organisation).

The changes brought by the 12th General Election in March 2008 offered unprecedented opportunities

for Malaysia's evolution when the Opposition won the popular vote. Yet due to gerrymandering, the result did not translate as well into seats in Parliament.

The immense popularity of Opposition figures such as Anwar Ibrahim looks at the possibility of electoral change to win with a bigger majority than last year during the 13th General Election. Moreover to exact revenge on the Malaysian regime that cast him aside years ago.

Aside all political promises, the 13th General Election on May 5, 2013, opens a new chapter in Malaysia's history.  The demand of Malaysians are clear... the possibility of a change in government.
