May 5 - Malaysia Polling Day - General Election 13

Today, Malaysians go to the polls to decide on the government for the next five years. Currently, the caretaker government is the National Front (Barisan Nasional) which has ruled the country for more than five decades since Malaysia's independence in 1957.

Will Barisan Nasional continue it's 'reign' or will Malaysia see a new government from the Opposition (Pakatan Rakyat or People's Alliance) occupying Putrajaya?
