Who will rule Malaysia after tight election race?

Of: inside story

Many Malaysians hoped the polls would lead to political stability, but the vote did not produce an outright winner.

Compromise appears to be the only way forward for politicians in Malaysia after a close race left parliament without a clear winner.

A coalition between the main candidates is now the only way to form a government.

If no compromise is reached, the king can appoint a politician as prime minister who he believes can command a majority in parliament.

What happens now?

And what does it mean for the country’s democracy?
