The largest party in Malaysia is known as the National Alliance or Barisan Nasional (BN). It is led by its chairman Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. BN is currently the ruling party which makes Najib the Prime Minister of Malaysia. The opposition front is led by its leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for the Pakatan Rakyat. While BN has ruled Malaysia for more than 50 years (since independence in 1957), the most recent general election saw the opposition gaining strength and winning more votes including capturing the states of Penang, Selangor, Kedah, Kelantan and initially Perak before it defected to the BN.
