Parliament was dissolved last April 7 to make way for GE14, which is described the “mother of all elections” that will witness contests mainly between BN, which is led by Umno, and the DAP-led opposition pact.

Following dissolution of the Parliament, the Election Commission (EC) fixed Saturday for nomination, May 5 for early voting and May 9 as polling day. - Bernama
