Malaysian Parliament Is Finally Dissolved For 13th General Election

*HOT* The Nomination Day will be on the 20th of April while the Election Day will be on the 5th of May 2013 (Sunday).

Finally~finally our prime minister Najib Tun Razak has dissolved our Malaysian 12th Parliament yesterday (3rd of April 2013) with the consent of the King, of course. It is the news that all of us-Malaysians, have been waiting for for months. The dissolution paves way for the 13th General Election which might be as early as 20th of April or one week later, depending on how the Election Commission (EC) would make arrangement. So are you guys are riled up already? I know I am!

The Election Commission will be meeting soon to set a date for the nomination day and polling day, which must be separated by at least 11 days. Now according to Article 55 (4) of the Federal Constitution, a general election must be held within 60 days of the dissolution of parliament, with 2nd of June 2013 being the last day. However I am sure that the 13th General Election will be held in April itself as Barisan Nasional can ill-afford anymore delays. I strongly believe that 27th (Saturday) April 2013 will be THE day our 13th General Election will be held. What say you?

Who will prevail this time?

All states will be holding our 13th General Election simultaneously except for Sarawak because it still has 3 years of mandate left after their state election in 2011. It will be interesting to see if the ruling government-Barisan Nasional, can at least secure a two-third majority in the parliament in this 13th General Election; Or will Barisan Nasional lose even more ground and even toppled by the Opposition which has been getting stronger and stronger? That we will have to wait and see.

Will Anwar and his allies be able to kick out Najib and his armies?

This will certainly be the tightest General Election in the history of Malaysia. The stake is high and both Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat (comprises PKR, DAP and PAS) are well aware of it. Barisan Nasional will be fighting tooth and nail to hold on to the "throne" that they have been sitting on for the past 54 years so that their wrongdoings and misdeeds won't be uncovered; Pakatan Rakyat on the other hand will be striking for the broke while their "iron" is still hot! It is now or never for a change that we Malaysians badly needed. Are you ready for change? VOTE!
