JOHOR BARU: The Johor State Assembly is expected to be officially dissolved on Saturday (Jan 22) evening to pave the way for a state election here.

Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Hasni Mohammad is set to meet with Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar this evening and is expected to advise the Ruler about the dissolution.

A special audience has been arranged at Istana Bukit Serene here.

"Once the dissolution document is signed, the speaker of the Legislative Assembly will then be notified. The Election Commission will then be given time to set dates for nomination and polling in the state," sources said.

When contacted, Johor speaker Suhaizan Kayat said that he has not heard anything officially so far, only chatter from others.

Talk about a state election has been rife since the death of Kempas assemblymen Datuk Osman Sapian which led to the government having a one seat majority.

Hasni is expected to chair a Johor Umno meeting with all its 26 division chiefs at its party headquarters here at 2pm today.

"The agenda today is purely about the state polls," the source said.
