PETALING JAYA – The drums have already started beating, and although the politicians are being coy, one thing is clear – the assemblies of six states where elections are due will be dissolved before the end of this month.The state elections are expected to be held at the end of July or early August at the latest.
Although none of the six chief executives of the states – Selangor, Kelantan, Terengganu, Negri Sembilan, Kedah and Penang – were willing to reveal the exact date of dissolution, five have requested an audience with their respective heads of state.
One Mentri Besar said he had whispered to the Istana of his state to allow him an audience with the Sultan in the last week of June.
Another said that he was preparing the papers with the proposed dissolution date to be presented to his Sultan.
