Posted on: 2018-04-06


PUTRAJAYA: After months of speculation, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced that Parliament will be dissolved on Saturday (April 7), paving the way for the 14th General Election (GE14).

Najib announced on Friday that he had earlier sought an audience with Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V to obtain his consent to dissolve Parliament.

Addressing the nation in a live telecast from Perdana Putra Complex, Najib was flanked by his deputy Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and his Cabinet ministers.

Following the announcement, all state legislative assemblies, save for Sarawak, are expected to apply for dissolution to ensure simultaneous parliamentary and state elections.

The exact nomination and polling dates will be decided by the Election Commission and announced later.

The general election must be held within 60 days of Parliament's dissolution.
