Barisan Nasional (BN), the ruling coalition led by caretaker Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, is seeking to secure a stronger mandate and regain its two-thirds parliamentary majority in the 14th general election. 

On the other hand, the Pakatan Harapan coalition led by the former premier of Malaysia for 22 years, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, is hoping to defeat the ruling coalition for the first time in history.

In one last bid to win voters, both Najib and Mahathir will be delivering their respective speeches at 10pm tonight, 8 May
