After a divisive election led to Malaysia’s first hung parliament, Anwar Ibrahim has secured the nation’s top job. But at what cost?
With uneasy alliances, racial and religious tensions and political rivals waiting in the wings, Malaysia’s new prime minister faces challenges on multiple fronts as he promises to crack down on corruption and unite the nation.
He’s overcome obstacles before on a tumultuous political journey, in which he’s twice been imprisoned on controversial sodomy charges.
