- Malaysians express shock and disbelief as Mahathir Mohamad's win ends party's 60-year hold on power.
Malaysian ex-leader Mahathir Mohamad, 92, has been invited to form the next government and will be sworn in later Thursday after a shock election win against the country's long-ruling coalition.
Mahathir's opposition alliance scored a surprise victory at the polls to break the grip on power of the Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition, which has governed Malaysia uninterrupted since its birth as an independent country in 1957.
