Yesterday, 9 May, Pakatan Harapan won Malaysia's 14th General Election (GE14) with a simple majority of 113 out of 222 seats

The Pakatan Harapan coalition's victory is a historic one as it means that Barisan Nasional (BN) loses it's uninterrupted grip on power in over six decades.

Another first for Malaysia is the return of an ex-Prime Minister, as Pakatan Harapan's chairman Mahathir Mohamad will take on the role again, 15 years after stepping down.

Malaysians woke up on the morning of 10 May to a brand new government, and to local publications reporting the same piece of news. Here are some of the front page covers of local newspapers today:

1. The Star

2. New Straits Times

3. Malay Mail

4. Utusan Malaysia

5. Berita Harian

6. Harian Metro

7. Sinar Harian
