Only six months ago, Malaysia notched a unique position in the realm of democracy in the eyes of the world. The country experienced a dramatic general election and a peaceful change in government, sans bloodshed or threats of racial strife.  A peaceful transition happening for a country like Malaysia – a melting pot of people from various races and religious beliefs – is simply a godsend. It displayed the maturity of the people and their acceptance of a democratic political process.
