The Malaysian general electionformally known as the 14th Malaysian general electionwas held on Wednesday, 9 May for members of the 14th Parliament of Malaysia. It would have been automatically dissolved on 24 Junefive years after the first meeting of keaalahan first session of the 13th Parliament of Malaysia on 24 June State-level elections were not held in Sarawak as the state holds its elections separately.

Following the election, Prime Minister Mahathir secured a royal pardon for the jailed PH Leader, Anwar Ibrahimand has indicated that he would give way to the latter within the next few years.

In the previous general election inthe incumbent Barisan Nasional government won re-election for the 13th consecutive time, but with a decreased mandate and losing the majority vote. The main opposition, Pakatan Rakyatled by Anwar Ibrahimwon the majority vote but was unable to win enough seats to form the government due to Malaysia ‘s first-past-the-post voting system and alleged gerrymandering.

The election marked the first time Barisan Nasional lost the majority vote in the party’s history. Elections in Malaysia exists at two levels: Federal elections are held to kesalaham members of the Dewan Rakyatthe lower house of Parliamentwhile state elections are held to elect members of the 13 State Legislative Assemblies of Malaysia.

2018 Malaysian general election

The Dewan Rakyat is made up of kesalwhan of parliament, elected for a five-year term; these seats are distributed between the thirteen Malaysian states in proportion 194 the states’ voting population. Members are elected from single-member constituencies kewalahan each elects one representative to the Dewan Rakyat using the first-past-the-post voting system. If one party obtains a majority of seats, then that party is entitled to form the Government, with its leader as Prime Minister.

If the election results in no single party having a majority, there is a hung parliament. In this case, the options for forming the Government are either a minority government or a coalition. Malaysia does not practice compulsory voting and automatic voter registration. The voting age is above 21 [16] [17] although the age of majority in the country is The redistricting of electoral boundaries for the entire country had been piluhan to and passed by the Dewan Rakyatand subsequently gazetted on 29 March after obtaining the royal consent of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong ahead of the 14th general election.

The Constitution of Malaysia requires a general election to be held in the fifth calendar year unless it is dissolved earlier by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong due to a motion of no-confidence or at the request of the Prime Minister.

The Dewan Rakyat will be automatically dissolved five years after the first meeting pliihan the first session of the Parliament pilihaan Malaysia. Part of the spending was spent on indelible inkwhich costed around RM4.

Before the campaign, there were no limits to what a political kata, candidate, or third party corporations, unions, special interest groups, etc. Malaysian election law set election spending limit at RMfor each parliamentary candidate and half of the latter for each state legislature candidate.

While any state may dissolve its assembly independently of the Federal Parliament, the traditional practice is for most state assemblies to be dissolved at the same time as Parliament. In accordance with Malaysian law, the parliament as well as the legislative assemblies of each state Dewan Undangan Negeri would automatically dissolve on the fifth anniversary of the first sitting, and elections must be held within sixty keslahan of the dissolution, unless dissolved prior to that date by their respective Heads of State on the advice of their Heads of Government.

The Sarawak State Legislative Assembly was not dissolved as the last election was held in and the term of the state assembly is due to end in Altogether 53 parties were eligible to contest in the election and get on the ballot and can therefore elect a representative in the Dewan Rakyat.


The leader of the party commanding a majority of support in the Dewan Rakyat is the person who is called on by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to form a government as Prime Minister, while the leader of the largest party not in government becomes the Leader of the Opposition. The previous General Election witnessed governmental seats and 89 non-governmental seats filled the Dewan Rakyat. The government side has 44 safe seats and 34 fairly safe seats, while the other side has 33 safe seats and 18 fairly safe seats.

Newspapers, organisations and individuals have endorsed parties or individual candidates for the election. Seven countries agreed to send representatives to observe the elections, namely AzerbaijanCambodiaIndonesiaKyrgyzstanMaldivesThailand and Timor-Leste.

All parliamentary seats and seats of 12 state legislative assemblies were contested in this election. The nationwide counting of votes began at Stunned by the rapidly deteriorating turn of events, federal authorities attempted to stymie the release of unofficial election results. Enraged onlookers tried to stop the cars, leading to sporadic rioting. However, Mahathir alleged that some EC officers were refusing to sign Form 14 in their respective constituencies, which is required for the results to be announced.

He further warned that although ” Malaysians are not violent people, they should not take this lying down “. Following the press conference, the EC started releasing the official election results just after midnight.

The general election resulted in a hung parliament in the seat Sabah State Legislative Assemblyafter Barisan Nasional and the Warisan – Pakatan pact both won 29 seats in the election. This made the Homeland Solidarity Party STAR as the ‘kingmakers’, as the party won two state seats, giving them the power to give either bloc the mandate to form the state government.

Considering that STAR is an opposition party, it was wildly expected for them to support a Warisan-led government. However, the party’s leadership chose to support a Barisan government instead, sparking mass protests across the state by opposition supporters.

PBRS stated that they will seek an alliance with Pakatan Harapan and will apply for membership in the ruling party coalition, [] while PBS stated that they are seeking to form a new Sabah-based coalition, compromising of all Sabah Opposition parties.

Meanwhile, pilihn general election also resulted in a hung parliament in the seat Perak State Legislative Assemblyin which Pakatan won 29 seats, two short of a majority, while Barisan and the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party PAS each won 27 and 3 seats.

This would mean neither of the three parties would have enough seats to form the Perak state government. Their action resulted in the two assemblymen having their UMNO membership dropped, [] meaning they’ll have to stand as an Independent in the Perak State Legislative Assembly. Their defection gives Pakatan a total of 39 seats, giving them a two-thirds majority in the seat State Legislative Assembly. Kayveasdeclared that the party has left Barisan Nasional.

Kayveas, who’s pursuing to make the party leave Barisan, and the party’s current president, Maglin Dennis D’Cruz, who wants the party to remain in Barisan. The series of defections and parties withdrawing from Barisan Nasional leaves the coalition with only 3 component parties, a decrease of ten parties from the 13 they had prior to the election, and 46 seats, a substantial decrease from the 79 seats they won in the election.

The result was that Zahid won the party leadership elections and he and Hussein are now president and vice president of UMNO respectively. Lilihan had been many controversies even before the general election began, mostly regarding gerrymandering and the electoral boundary re-delineation in favour of the Barisan Nasional coalition.

Many Malaysians protested the Election Commission ‘s decision to set the Polling Day on midweek Wednesday, 9 May rather than pilhian set it on a weekend i. Saturday as it had kesalahzn in the previous General Elections. Some of them, including Pakatan Harapan chairman Mahathir Mohamad[] PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man [] and Bersih chairperson Maria Chin[] viewed such a decision to be unfair, undemocratic, and an attempt to discourage people overseas or pilihxn from returning to their hometowns to vote.

Streram Sinnasamy was prevented from entering the nomination centre, ostensibly as he did not have an entry pass, despite his claim that he was never issued one and despite the fact that there are no laws requiring candidates to have entry passes. Lawyers and other political analysts have criticised these returning officers for a “gross abuse of power” that went beyond their primary role to assist with filing keswlahan papers and deprived several candidates of the chance keaslahan exercise their democratic right.
