Malaysia election: PM Razak to face voters' verdict on May 9

Embattled Prime Minister Najib Razak is under pressure to deliver a win for his ruling coalition, as he continues to be dogged by a financial scandal.

    Nearly 15 million people are expected to cast their votes on May 9.

    Malaysians will go to the polls in a month's time to cast their votes in an election seen as a big test for Prime Minister Najib Razak.

    His ruling coalition, Barisan Nasional (National Front), has been in power for more than 60 years.

    But he has been dogged by a financial scandal and faces an opposition alliance led by former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.
