On October 31, 2003, Prime Minister Mahathir handed over his office to his previous deputy, Abdullah bin Haji Ahmad Badawi, after 22 years in government. His government alliance Barisan Nasional, advocating a “progressive and modern” Islam, clearly won the – albeit not fair – parliamentary elections on March 21, 2004; The Islamist PAS lost its government majority in Terengganu in the elections that took place in the states at the same time. In September 2004, the former Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim became released from custody after an acquittal by the Supreme Court, but with the condition that he may not take up any political office until mid-April 2008; in July 2008 he was charged again on charges of homosexuality. In August 2008, however, he won a by-election and entered the Malaysian parliament. Check printerhall to see Summer Vacation Trips in South Asia.

The early parliamentary elections on March 8, 2008 revealed a sharp shift in the domestic political balance of power. The Barisan Nasional government coalition, which has had an undisputed two-thirds majority since it was formed in 1973, missed this for the first time and only won 140 of 222 parliamentary seats. This turning away from large parts of the population from the government alliance resulted from v. a. from the – despite robust economic development – growing internal problems in Malaysia (e.g. high inflation, increasing corruption and crime, ethnic tensions due to the social privileges of the Malays compared to the Chinese and Indian minorities). On March 10, 2008, Abdullah bin Haji became Ahmad Badawi sworn in for another term as prime minister. However, his position within the party was weakened, so that on April 3, 2009, he handed over his office to his deputy, Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak. In July 2011, the opposition called for a new right to vote at a large demonstration in Kuala Lumpur. The security forces took massive action against the demonstrators. In the same year, Abdul Halim (* 1927), Sultan of Kedah, was elected king. In mid-January 2012, Anwar Ibrahim became opposition leader acquitted of allegation of homosexuality for lack of evidence. Human rights organizations had always described the process as politically motivated. A few days after the acquittal, the public prosecutor appealed. In April 2012, renewed demonstrations for electoral law reform in Kuala Lumpur led to violent riots. In January 2013 tens of thousands again demonstrated for political reform. In the parliamentary elections on May 5, 2013, the government alliance Barisan Nasional won 133 of the 222 parliamentary seats, according to the electoral authority. Najib Razak remained prime minister. The opposition charged with election manipulation. Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim was sentenced on March 7, 2014 to five years imprisonment for homosexuality. An appeals court had overturned the 2012 acquittal of a lower instance. Anwar appealed, which was rejected in February 2015.

On March 8, 2014, a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 with 239 people on board disappeared without a trace over the Indian Ocean on its flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The wreck of the machine could not be found despite an extensive search. On July 17, 2014, another Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 was most likely crashed by a surface-to-air missile on its flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur over eastern Ukraine. 298 people died.

Despite sharp criticism from the opposition and human rights activists, Parliament passed an anti-terror law on April 7, 2015, which allows suspects to be arrested without charge. The country’s government justified its bill with concerns about the radicalization of the population. As recently as January 2015, 120 alleged sympathizers of the »Islamic State« were arrested in Malaysia. In July 2015, Prime Minister Najib Razak was attacked Allegations were made that he had transferred large sums of money from a heavily indebted sovereign wealth fund to private accounts just a few weeks before the 2013 parliamentary election. In July 2015, the head of government exchanged several ministers and his deputy and removed the investigating attorney general from office. In August 2015 and November 2016, tens of thousands of demonstrators in Kuala Lumpur called for the prime minister’s resignation and for political reforms.

In the succession of Abdul Halim, Muhammad V (* 1969), Sultan of Kelantan, became the new head of state of Malaysia on December 13, 2016. After only two years in office, King Sultan Muhammad V abdicated on January 6, 2019 without giving any reason. Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah (* 1959) was elected as the new head of state with a term of office from January 31, 2019.

The parliamentary elections on May 9, 2018 led to a change of power: The Barisan Nasional government coalition only received 79 of the 222 seats and was thus subject to the Pakatan Harapan opposition alliance (113 seats) with its top candidate Mahathir bin Mohammed, who was again, but now as chairman of the Malaysian United Indigenous Party (PPBM) who became Prime Minister. Shortly afterwards, the king pardoned the imprisoned Anwar Ibrahim, who with his People’s Justice Party (PJP) belonged to the new government alliance.
