It consists of thirteen states and three federal territories and has a total landmass of 329,847 km square separated by the South China Sea into two similarly sized regions, Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysia Borneo (Sabah, Sarawak, Labuan FT).The country is multi-ethnic and multi-cultural, which plays a large role in politics. The constitution declares Islam as the country religion, while protecting freedom of other religion, Christianity, Buddhism and others. The head of state is the king, known as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. The head of government is the prime minister.Legislative power is divided between federal and state legislatures. The bicameral federal parliament consists of the lower house, the House of Representatives and the upper house, the Senate. Malaysia has been governed by a multi-party coalition known as the Barisan Nasional (UMNO and others). The opposition coalition party is Pakatan Rakyat (PKR, PAS, DAP & others), which was led by Anwar Ibrahim.State governments are led by Chief Ministers, who are state assembly members from the majority party in the assembly. Registered voters of age 21 and above may vote for the members of the House of Representatives and, in most of the states, for the state legislative chamber, each in five years.Executive power is vested in the Cabinet, led by the Prime Minister, which is both the head of cabinet and the head of government. The incumbent, Najib Razak, appointed in 2009, is the sixth prime minister. The past prime minister was Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Abdul Razak, Tun Hussein Onn, Tun Mahathir Mohammad and Tun Abdullah Badawi.Malaysia's legal system is based on English Common Law.Although the judiciary is theoretically independent, its independence has been called into question and the appointment of judges lacks accountability and transparency, as seen in cases on Mongolian model Altantuya, Anwar Ibrahim sodomy case. Malaysia also has a special court to hear cases brought by or against royalty. The death penalty is in use for crimes such as murder, terrorism and drug trafficking. Syariah Courts, apply Shariah law to Muslims in the areas of family law and religious observances.Race is a significant force in politics, and many political parties are ethnically based. Affirmative actions such as the National Development Policy which superseded it, were implemented to advance the standing of the bumiputera, consisting of Malays and the indigenous tribes who are considered the original inhabitants of Malaysia, over non-bumiputera such as Malaysian Chinese and Malaysian Indians. However, it has generated greater inter-ethnic resentment. There is ongoing debate over whether the laws and society of Malaysia should reflect secular or Islamic principles. Islamic criminal laws, Hudud, passed by the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party in state legislative assembly of Kelantan have been blocked by the federal government on the basis that criminal laws are the responsibility of the federal government.#DOWNLOAD MALAYSIA NEWS & WEATHER FREE NOW#
