PM dissolves Parliament

Special Announcement:

Malaysia’s PM Dato Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi dissloves the Parliament today at 1:00pm local Malaysian time [+8:00 GMT]. He announced the dissolution of the Parliament at a specially arranged press conference at his office in Putrajaya. He had advised the king to dissolve federal parliament about a year before its five-year term was due to end. He gave no reason, but analysts have said the ruling coalition wants a fresh mandate before the economy slows and inflation picks up steam. The ruling coalition [Barisan Nasional] hopes to retain a two-thirds majority of the 222 seats up for grabs at the polls, which we going to see about a month or less after today. So mark your calender for the General Election. Watch the News at home but never forget to blog about it 🙂

The Election Commission will meet soon to fix the election date, though political analysts expect it to be held during the first ten days of March. Who is going to win in this coming General Election 2008?

    here is my prediction : People’s Front ( Barisan Rakyat ) will win and form the new government with God’s is FATE that the shadow of the fear factor 513 be reversed this time. it is God’s making that He turns ‘5’ upsidedown into ‘2’ and thus positve energy is generated into Feb 13 ‘213’ when parliament was dissolved. May 13 ‘513’ will be history and a new hope has begun on Feb 13 ‘213’. DS Anwar will be returned to lead our country.
