Malaysia: New government sworn in after 61-year party rule

Malaysia's new government has been sworn in, after the 61-year rule of the same political party came to an end in elections in May.

Ninety out of the 222 members of Parliament are new faces. Among them is veteran politician Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, who switched parties to lead a campaign against former leader Najib Razak.
