KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 19 — [6.30pm] Polling has closed for Malaysia’s 15th general election, the most fiercely contested in the country’s history, with three coalitions in the running to secure control of the federal government.

Attention will now shift towards the counting of the ballots that will determine which of the three — Barisan Nasional, Pakatan Harapan, and Perikatan Nasional — will be the frontrunners to secure a plurality.

However, projections that no coalition is likely to reach the threshold of 112 seats needed for a simple majority in Parliament means a clear winner might not emerge tonight, or even early tomorrow.
