Statement by the Spokesperson on the general election in Malaysia

In the general elections of 9 May, the Malaysian people have voted for peaceful change.

The European Union expects the result to be respected, beginning with a smooth and orderly transfer of power, in line with the Malaysian constitution.

We look forward to working with the future government in Malaysia to further strengthen our relations for the benefit of all Malaysian and European citizens.
