From: Inside Story

Many Malaysians were hoping polls would lead to political stability but the vote produced no outright winner.

Compromise seems the only way forward for politicians in Malaysia after a very tight race left parliament with no clear winner.

A coalition between the leading runners is now the sole path to forming a government.

If a compromise is not agreed upon, the king can appoint a politician as prime minister who he believes can command a majority in parliament.

So what happens now?

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