Voter fraud hounds Malaysia's ruling party

Ruling party accused of giving out citizenship to illegal immigrants in order to secure votes and win elections.

    Malaysia votes in a general election on Sunday and one of the main battlegrounds is Sabah.

    Sabah was once considered a swing state, but has been a stronghold for the governing coalition for almost twenty years. But now, allegations have been made that previous administrations gave citizenship to illegal immigrants in exchange for votes.
