Malaysians have begun voting in what is likely to be the country’s closest-fought general election.
 
Prime Minister Najib Razak’s coalition is pitted against a resurgent opposition steered by 92-year-old former leader Mahathir Mohamad.
 
Najib’s long-ruling Barisan Nasional is expected to win despite an election-eve opinion poll suggesting that its support was slipping and that Mahathir’s alliance would land more votes in peninsular Malaysia, home to 80 percent of the population.
 
Under Malaysia’s first-past-the-post system, the party or alliance with the majority of seats in the 222-member parliament wins.
