Malaysia is a federal constitutional monarchy with a two-house legislature. The government is based on the 1957 constitution of the Federation of Malaya, which was an independent nation from 1957 to 1963 that occupied present-day West Malaysia. The Federation of Malaya joined with Singapore, Sarawak, and Sabah to form the Federation of Malaysia in 1963, although Singapore became an independent republic in 1965. All citizens of Malaysia who are at least 21 years old may vote.
