Malaysia vote: PM Najib Razak's Barisan Nasional wins

The ruling National Front coalition has won a simple majority in Malaysia's election, extending its 56-year rule, with two-thirds of seats confirmed.

PM Najib Razak's Barisan Nasional (National Front) coalition had passed 112 seats in the 222-seat parliament, the country's Election Commission said.

Defeated opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim accused the party of widespread fraud before and during the polls.
