The Malaysian general election of 1969 was the third general election since independence, held in West Malaysia (Malaya) on May 10, 1969, and in East Malaysia later in the month. It resulted in the return to power, with a reduced majority, of the ruling Alliance Party, comprising the United Malays National Organization, the Malayan Chinese Association, and the Malayan Indian Congress. It was followed by violent communal rioting between Malays and Chinese (see May 13 Incident).
