NPR's Michael Sullivan reports from Kuala Lumpur about the campaigning in Malaysia for Sunday's national elections. Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has been campaigning on a back-to-basics Muslim teaching platform. His opposition is the fundamentalist Muslim group PAS. They did well in the last elections in 1999 and are looking for a better showing this year.
