45,000 Malaysians join anti-government rally

Published: 01.12.13, 15:02 / Israel News

More than 45,000 Malaysians have joined a massive opposition rally in a show of force ahead of general elections due in months. Police sealed off key roads in downtown Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, allowing protesters to march peacefully to a nearby stadium for the rally

by opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim's three-party alliance.

The rally focuses on demanding further transparency in elections that must be held by June. The polls are seen a major test for Prime Minister Najib Razak's ruling coalition after its dismal performance in 2008 elections. Saturday's rally was testing Najib's tolerance for public dissent after police used tear gas to quell two similar protests over the past year. (AP)
