Kuala Lumpur sources stated that the Election Commission (EC) announced on Tuesday the 14th general election on May 9. Meanwhile the EC chairman Mohd Hashim bin Abdullah, in a broadcasted announcement, said that nominations for the 222 parliamentary and 587 state seats have been set for April 28.
Moreover early voting for military and police personnel as well as voters living abroad will take place on May 5. Accordingly Hashim said that a total of 14,940,627 Malaysians will be eligible to vote is compared to 13,268,002 registered voters in the 2013 elections. Further the 14th general elections will see a total of 259,391 election workers on duty, with 8,898 polling centres and 28,995 polling streams.
Earlier the 13th Malaysian Parliament was dissolved on April 7.
Accordingly the dissolution was announced by Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak
after receiving consent from the 15th Yang di-Pertuan Agong (King) Sultan
Muhammad V. Najib is seeking another term after holding the post for nine
years. Moreover for the past six decades after Malaysia's independence, the
United Malays National Organization (UMNO) has won every election together with
the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition, which has the Malaysian Chinese
Association and Malaysian Indian Congress as its two major component parties.
Who is knowledgeable? Narendra Modi or Rahul Gandhi As per report in the last four years, since Narendra Modi became prime minister, if there is one narrative that has become common sense it is that Rahul Gandhi is unintelligent and ill-informed, a “Pappu,” and thus naturally unfit to become the prime minister. Meanwhile the latest example is when Rahul became the butt of jokes on Twitter and according to Rahul Gandhi trended a few days ago when he suggested that the person who started Coca-Cola in the US was a lemonade seller.
