Opposition fears amid Malaysia campaigning

Claims that deep-rooted ties between ruling party and agencies conducting election mean unfair contest.

    Campaigning is under way in what could be Malaysia's closest election in years.

    The ruling party has been in power for 56 years - since the country's independence.

    But the opposition claims that over the decades a strong relationship between the party and government agencies tasked with conducting the election leaves them at a disadvantage.
