Six states expected to dissolve assemblies in June


PETALING JAYA: The six states which polls are due this year have reached an understanding to dissolve their respective state assemblies in the last two weeks of June.

"We have reached an understanding to consider the dissolution of our respective state assemblies in the last two weeks of June," said Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari in a Facebook post.

Amirudin also shared a photo of himself with the mentris besar and chief ministers of the six states, namely Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow, Negri Sembilan Mentri Besar Datuk Aminuddin Harun, Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Muhamad Sanusi Md Nor, Kelantan Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Yakob and Terengganu Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr. Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar.

"This understanding will be discussed by respective parties before being presented to the Rulers and governors of the states," he said.

The six states did not dissolve their respective state assemblies during the 15th General Election last year.

Chow also said in a Facebook post that the meeting of the six mentris besar and chief ministers this afternoon has reached an understanding that the state assemblies will be dissolved in the last two weeks of June to pave the way for the state elections.

“This understanding will be conveyed to the respective heads of state and party leadership,” he added in a Facebook post.

On the date of the state elections, Chow said that the Election Commission will decide the matter.
