Have you seen the badly bashed up Najib Tun Razak cartoon?

The so-called hollow victory of the Malaysian 13th General Election by Barisan Nasional is aptly caricatured by Singapore cartoonist Heng Kim Song (below).

It was published on The New York Times (Global Edition) on May 11th 2013.

It shows a badly bashed up Najib Tun Razak as the winner of a boxing match between him and Anwar Ibrahim. The referee is the election committee.
