Malaysia: Nomination Day And Polling Day To Be Announced Tomorrow, Says EC

PUTRAJAYA, MALAYSIA: The chairman of Election Commission (EC) Tan Sri Dato' Seri Hj. Abdul Rashid said the EC will announce the nomination day and the polling day of the 12th general election on Thursday (14 Feb).

He said that he will hold a press conference Thursday to announce further details.

During the interview, he said the nomination day and the polling day are likely to be held after the Chap Goh Mei (21 Feb), to avoid from affecting the festive atmosphere and activities.

“The election will be held within 60 days. But generally, it won't be too long,” he said at a news conference earlier on.

Abdul Rashid pointed out that the EC will hold a discussion Thursday to discuss the nomination day and the polling day.

“We will set the most appropriate time so that every political party can identify their candidates, as well as to provide appropriate election time.”

He said that the EC would consider the security arrangements as well as the most comfortable date for the public for nomination and polling. (Sin Chew Daily)
