IPOH: Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir (pic) says he will seek an audience with the Perak Ruler Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah on Saturday (April 7) to present a motion to dissolve the state assembly.

"The state exco had a meeting earlier and followed the live telecast of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's announcement.

"For Perak, we will follow the date and dissolve the state assembly on the same day," Dr Zambry told the press at the state secretariat building here Friday (April 6).

On Friday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced that Parliament will be dissolved Saturday (April 7), paving the way for the 14th General Election (GE14) to be called.

He said 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.
