Parliament has been dissolved, and the gloves are off in Malaysia as political leaders gear up for a fight over corruption, discrimination and the cost of living. Parliamentary polls will pit the National Front Coalition - in power since 1957 - against a resurgent opposition.

Three million first time voters - nearly a quarter of those eligible - will have to decide who to give their support to.
