VOICES: Malaysian voters weigh risks of change

In this Monday, April 22, 2013 photo, Malaysian landscape architect Ng Sek San, 50, prepares to plant miniature flags at a roundabout in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Malaysians face a stark choice Sunday, May 5, 2013 in their most hotly contested general elections ever: Stick with what they know, a long-ruling coalition accused of corruption, or take a chance on an untested opposition. Ng has earned praise for his work in Malaysian hotels and parks, but he considers his latest initiative, the "Malaysian Spring," to be among his most ambitious. The volunteer movement that he and his friends introduced through Facebook this past month has prompted residents of Kuala Lumpur's suburbs to hand-produce and plant tens of thousands of colorful miniature flags in grassy sidewalks and playgrounds, symbolizing their hope for a fresh political start.
