HOW IS A NEW GOVERNMENT FORMED?

Thanks to thenutgraph.com for this photo.

Since Pak Lah will be resigning "shortly", many have asked me what is the constitutional position - how is the new government formed constitutionally? YBM Tengku Razeleigh Hamzah has written a simple and clear explanation how a new government is formed. He says:

Let us understand very clearly the transitional situation we are in".
